Watching: Where is the venue for games?

In the past we have used various venues for our bouts. We currently use The Doug Ellis Sports Centre.

Things you may like to know about the venue – there is parking but it can get busy easily so give yourself enough time. Customers of the sports centre may park for free for up to three hours however you must speak with reception at Doug Ellis to check for eligibility. There is no cash point on site so please get your money before you arrive. The centre has vending machines but does not serve hot food. Doug Ellis also has disabled access.
