Please park on Hawcoat Lane or on the nearby roads. Limited parking is available in the Hoops car park off Thorncliffe Road.

Do not park on the walk route. Car parking at the sports club is reserved for event pass holders only.

Unfortunately, parking in this area can be quite difficult at peak times, so be prepared to park further away than you would ideally like, and walk to the sports club.

Users of the car parking areas do so at their own risk. The organisers will not accept responsibility for damage, accident or loss.

Do not bring dogs (except guide dogs) into the sports club grounds.
