Nottinghamshire’s Second XI will make their return to action at Notts Sports Club against Derbyshire next week, with spectators welcome to attend.

The four-day fixture commences on Monday 23 August with an 11am start at the Lady Bay venue.

Entry, which is free of charge, will be permitted from 10am – albeit some parts of the experience will be a little different to what spectators became accustomed to prior to Covid-19.

Although many Covid-related restrictions have been lifted by the government, players, support staff and officials are required to continue operating within a socially-distanced environment.

It is, therefore, essential that the integrity of the accommodation required for players, support staff and officials, continues to be protected.

Spectators, therefore, will not be able to access the pavilion with designated toilet facilities provided elsewhere at the venue.

On-site car parking will not be available on Wednesday 25 August due to the Vitality Blast Quarter Final taking place the same day. Limited parking will be available on the other three days of the game.
