Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service

Following the latest government guidelines, changing rooms and showers will not be available to use until further notice and we urge teams to come ready to play. Changing rooms can be used to store bags and toilets are available.

Regular cleaning is taking place prior to every booking, for example, before a cricket game, or football game and before another user attends. This includes all touch surfaces, toilet facilities and changing rooms, and hand sanitiser stations have been installed. We encourage users to bring their own hand sanitiser and wipes to wipe touch points down as you leave.

Hirers must complete a specific COVID-19 risk assessment, in addition to their activity risk assessment, following guidance by National Governing Bodies and government guidelines, and be prepared to share a copy upon request.

Please familiarise yourself with our FAQs.
