Specifically, no spectators are permitted to enter the cricket ground or the cricket pavilion, which is strictly reserved as a Players and Match Officials Area (PMOA).

If travelling by car, spectators are requested to park their vehicles within the Golf Club car park and take a leisurely stroll down La Fuente which will lead them to the cricket ground spectators’ area.

We are looking forward to some intense battles between these teams and some great entertainment on our superb cricket ground.
