Accessibility

Somerset County Cricket Club is determined to provide excellent facilities for all supporters in order to allow them to enjoy matches and other events at The Cooper Associates County Ground.

Ground Admission

Whilst the disabled supporter(s) will be required to pay full price for their membership(s) or ticket(s), carer’s admission will be provided free of the admission charge. Please note, carer’s will only be given free access to the Cooper Associates County Ground when with the disabled supporter.

Parking

There are up to eight designated disabled car parking spaces on site and these will be allocated via a ballot system. For more information, please contact the Main Office on 01845 337 1875.

Due to the limited car parking on site; we are unable to guarantee any further parking spaces. However, our Stewards will try to accommodate you where possible and disabled spectators may be dropped off within the Ground.
