Covid safety measures
Please do not attend our venue if you have symptoms of Covid-19, incur 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 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.
For clarity, the above measures are requested on a voluntary basis only. They will not be enforced, and are not a condition of entry.
Hours of Play
Gates open at 11am, with the toss set to take place at 12.30pm. The scheduled hours of play are as follows:
Kindly note that all times are subject to change.
One hour of extra time is allocated to the final, while Friday 20 August is available as a reserve day if no play is possible.
