SAT JUL 03 - EURO 2020 LIVE AT LGCC: Our Plans To Screen The England Game

01 Jul 2021

WORKING within C-19 constraints, Leverstock Green CC is going the extra mile to try and accommodate as many members watching the big game with us on Saturday night as possible.

This includes the temporary installation of a giant outdoor screen, facing in from The Green towards the patio area, to accommodate those who are happy to watch al fresco and perhaps haven't been regular bookers of inside places for previous England matches.

The text booking system via Bar Chairman Graham Evans has worked well. He's been inundated since Tuesday, to no surprise, and promises to reply as soon as possible to confirm bookings first of all to those who've watched with us through the earlier parts of the tournament.

We will fill the clubhouse with the maximum 42 people; both via pre-bookings and then filling any gaps on the night with parties of one or two people as available.

Everyone else will be required to watch the game from the patio or grass, but we hope the 120" screen - affixed to a sightscreen for the purpose and due to be tested both this evening and Friday night - will do the job more than adequately for those outside.

Thanks to those who've joined us so far; it's been a great atmosphere considering reduced numbers. We know from feedback that the newly-installed 58" screens have proved a real hit in terms of providing a great view of the action wherever you're seated inside.

Given what's stated above, you are therefore welcome to follow the booking procedures below, noting that priority will be given to repeat bookers.

Please text Bar Chairman Graham Evans on 07850 749256, stating you're booking for England v Ukraine on Saturday July 3.

Please put the number of people you'd like to book for on your text (1, 2, etc., up to 6). This helps us ensure all areas of six are filled. 

Graham will reply to your text ONLY if your booking request has been successful, to confirm.

 Please DO NOT post requests to social media. Such messages will not be picked up or actioned. Booking is by text only so that it's just one route in for requests.

Our capacity is 42 (seven tables of 6 people per table), plus the outdoor arrangements stated above.

Thanks in advance for your understanding and co-operation.
