Car parking tariffs
We’ve introduced car parking tariffs, which came into effect from Monday 25 July 2016.
This is because we’re seeing an increase in drivers parking here who aren’t participating in hockey or tennis activities and our customers often experience difficulties in finding parking spaces.
If you’re taking part in hockey or tennis activities at the venue, you can park free for four hours from the time of entering the car park. To obtain this free parking, make sure you enter your full, correct vehicle registration number into one of the terminals within the venue. If you wish to stay longer than the four hours, then the standard parking terms and charges will apply.
Tariffs for non venue users and for hockey/tennis users past four hours
Up to 1 hour £3
Up to 2 hours £6
Up to 3 hours £15

How do I claim my four hours free parking?
It is your responsibility to enter your full vehicle registration details into the terminal correctly and note when your four hours free parking period expires.
You can input your details at any point during your visit (i.e. entering the venue, during a session or when leaving the venue).
Please remember to do this on every visit to avoid receiving a fixed penalty charge notice. Please also ensure you follow the terms and conditions displayed within the car park.
What if I want to stay longer than four hours?
If you wish to stay past four hours and up to seven hours, you will need to pay the car parking tariffs for the additional three hours on expiry of the four hours.
How do I appeal if I have received a Penalty Charge Notice?
Please be aware that venue staff are not involved in the issuing of or the appeals process for any Penalty Charge Notice given.
The car park is run by ParkingEye and in the event of a customer appealing their parking charge all appeals are dealt with directly by them. You would need to contact ParkingEye as per the details on their charge letter, which is via one of the following methods: in writing to ParkingEye, PO Box 575, Chorley, PR6 6HT or via the online appeals form at parkingeye.co.uk/Appeal.
Please note the venue does not profit in any way from the issuing of Penalty Charge Notices and we will support an appeal if the customer has abided by and followed the car parking terms and conditions fully.
