1. Timing and punctuality. We start at 9.30 a.m. sharp and all rugby is completed by 11.30 a.m.
2. Parking. There is limited parking at the ground with slow entry and exit. With several hundred cars turning up we advise that you car share wherever possible. The earliest arrivals at the ground will be able to park in the limited parking on site but will find they have a slow exit at the end of the morning. We recommend the use of the pay and display car park on the opposite side of the A316 from the club. You will find it just along the A316 heading away from Richmond towards Twickenham (see other attachment). It is just over a 5 minute walk from this car park across the metal footbridge over the A316 to the club. Please allow plenty of time to park, walk to the ground, locate your pitch and get ready. Better still, get the train to Richmond station and walk the 5 minutes to the ground!
3. Dogs. For obvious health reasons, dogs are not allowed in the Athletic ground. If you bring a dog, please leave it in your car and ensure that it has sufficient air and water.
4. Pitch layout: A map of the pitch positions can be found on the external wall of the old changing room building which you pass on foot on your right hand side just before reaching the main clubhouse. Pitch allocation to be confirmed at a later date.
