Ticket refund policy
For days 1 to 4 of the Test Match: If, for the day for which the ticket is valid (where the date of the match has changed this means the new date of the match), the venue is unable to admit spectators OR play does not take place OR play is restricted, you will be entitled to a refund of only the match ticket value subject to there being: (a) non admittance of spectators OR zero to 15 overs played - a full refund; (b) 15.1 overs to 30 overs played - a 50% refund. In no other circumstances can money be refunded.
In respect of tickets purchased in advance for the day on which this ticket is valid, the refund process will be commenced automatically by Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club to the original purchaser only. Any refunds will be processed either by refunding to the debit or credit card used to make the purchase or by BACS payment.
For refund queries, please contact our ticket office via firstname.lastname@example.org or 0115 899 0300. Further information is available at www.ecb.co.uk/refundscheme. Please allow 30 days for the refund process to take place.
This refund policy does not apply to day 5 of Test Matches. For day 5 tickets, a full refund may be claimed on the value of the ticket only if there is no play because of adverse weather conditions or completion of the match.
Covid safety measures
Please do not attend our venue if you or anyone within your household undergoes symptoms of Covid-19, incurs a positive test or if you have been asked to self-isolate by NHS test and trace.
Meanwhile, for everybody's safety and peace of mind, we are encouraging all spectators – on a voluntary basis – to follow the guidance outlined below:
We know many of our spectators will be double vaccinated, and will have received the second jab more than 14 days prior.
If that is the case, you need take no further action ahead of the day of the game.
If you are not double vaccinated, we heartily encourage you to conduct a lateral flow Covid test, which are available to order from the government website here or from local pharmacies, within 48 hours of your visit and not to attend if the result is positive.
Once in the ground, we ask that you retain impeccable hand hygiene, use the sanitisers provided around the ground and apply a face covering as you move around the venue.
Pssssssst! For clarity, the above measures are requested on a voluntary basis only. They will not be enforced, and are not a condition of entry.
