Tickets on the day
Hours of play
Gates open at 9am, with the all-important toss of the coin & team announcement at 10.30am and start of play scheduled for 11am.
The first innings of 50 overs will take place between 11am and 2.30pm, before a 30-minute interval. The second innings of 50 overs will then take place between 3pm and 6.30pm.
Where to find us
Grantham Cricket Club (NG31 7UE) is situated just off Gorse Lane, and is easily accessible from the A1.
Access to the ground will be clearly signposted on the day.
There will be two entry gates available: one for spectators on foot from Gorse Lane, and one from those arriving by car off Wyville Road.
Please follow temporary traffic signage as you approach the ground.
You’ll need your membership card or match ticket at the ready to gain entry.
Travelling by car
Car Parking for spectators will be available off Wyville Road adjacent to the cricket club, rather than through the main entrance to the ground. This will be priced at £2 for members and £5 for non-members. Minubus parking will also be available at the same location, priced at £10.
Trains are scheduled to run at regular intervals between Nottingham and Grantham on the morning and evening of the game. Journey times vary between 30-40 minutes, and return fares cost from £10. For the latest timetable information, please check the National Rail website before planning your journey.
A taxi between Grantham Railway Station and the cricket ground will cost approx. £10 each way, taking approximately 7 minutes to reach the ground. A taxi drop-off area will be available at the ground via the Gorse Lane entrance.
Grantham Cricket Club provides an out-ground cricket watching experience. A picnic rug may, therefore, be all you need to enjoy the match in this setting.
Fold down chairs will be available at the ground and supporters are also welcome to bring along their own seating.
You may notice a few changes to your experience in comparison with previous visits to outgrounds, due to the protocols which remain in place around the playing group in relation to Covid-19.
This will result in a section of the ground being deemed a 'red zone', reserved for players and essential support staff only.
Regretfully, the traditional perambulation of spectators onto the outfield during intervals will also not be permitted.
Despite these measures, we hope you find that the quintessential experience of watching outground cricket remains intact.
Food & Drink
A number of catering options will be available at food units around the ground:
- Chapel House Pizza Company
- Rex Catering, serving burgers, pies and sausages
- Cake stall
- Sweet stall
- Ice Cream van
There will also be a bar facilities serving alcoholic and soft drinks.
If you still wish to bring your own food & drink, please ensure any food or soft drinks are in plastic or cardboard containers, avoiding alcohol, cans, glassware or metal cutlery.
Unfortunately, the Trent Bridge Shop will not be present at Gorse Lane. However, should you wish to secure any matchday paraphernalia in advance, browse our selection online here.
Toilet facilities will be available around the ground and will be clearly signposted.
All of the seating for this fixture will be at ground level, so the ground will be easily accessible for those using wheelchairs.
The weather can take turns during the day, so please bring clothing to cover all eventualities.
