Cancellation due to unplayable conditions

If weather conditions make it probable that pitches will be unsuitable for play, patrol staff will inspect the surface to determine whether play should be allowed to proceed and will update the sports answerphone information line. 

It is intended before weekend games, to make a decision one day prior to the game. However, should ground conditions deteriorate, patrol staff will undertake inspections as required.

The patrol staff and officers decision shall be final and binding. Details of changing facilities available at each ground are available from Serco Ltd. Information on cancellations over the weekend period please call the information line on 01227 766 847.
