Match-Day Disabled Parking: Alteration to booking procedure
Somerset County Cricket Club have announced that we will be making alterations to our booking procedure for match-day disabled car park allocation.
In previous seasons, Members who are qualified for the Blue Badge scheme have been able to contact the Club two weeks prior to the start of a match in order to pre-book one of our disabled parking spaces. This has operated on a first come, first served basis.
However, following the ground development work that has taken place over the winter, we have increased the number of our disabled parking spaces and in order to make the booking process fairer, as well as giving more people the opportunity to book these spaces, the Club will now be allocating them via a ballot scheme.
Once the deadline for entering the ballot has passed, our disabled parking spaces will be allocated automatically at random.
If you are successful in being allocated a space for a particular match you will be notified by email or by telephone.
If you are unable to attend your particular match day you must notify us in advance so that your space can be re-allocated. If you fail to notify us of your absence on more than one occasion any subsequent spaces will be deleted and re-allocated.
People wishing to enter the ballot for disabled parking can do so by clicking here or by calling the Club on 0845 337 1875.
The deadlines for entering the ballot will be as follows:
Deadline One – Apply before 5pm on Friday March 31st 2017 if you wish to enter the ballot for the following Specsavers County Championship matches:
- Somerset v Essex – Friday April 14th to Monday April 17th
- Somerset v Warwickshire – Friday May 19th to Monday April 22nd
- Somerset v Hampshire – Friday May 26th to Monday May 29th
- Somerset v Yorkshire – Friday June 9th to Monday June 12th
Details of the deadlines for the remaining fixtures will be announced in due course.
