Outdoor hospitality experience returns for Test

After a successful debut last summer, the Pavilions in the Park hospitality experience will again be on offer for members and guests on the first three days of the Boxing Day Test.

Members will be able to relax, socialise and mingle in hospitality marquees in Yarra Park, directly outside the MCC Members Reserve entrance, while enjoying food and beverages in comfortable surrounds.

The addition of Pavilions in the Park came in response to feedback from members about the club’s ability to cater for the sustained strong demand for food and beverages on major event days.

The relaxed garden atmosphere will again feature two marquees – namely “Bat and Bowl Bar” and “Long Bar” – complete with TV monitors and seating.

There will be a giant screen that allows you to watch the cricket in a park setting, as well as food trucks and music.

Importantly, all categories of members will be able to scan in to the exclusive zone throughout the day, including Provisional members who cannot otherwise access the Reserve on the first two days of the Test. Valid visitor tickets holders will also be able to scan their ticket to enter at any time.

Open from 10.00am to 8.30pm on December 26, 27 and 28, this will be a great way to catch up with friends at the cricket during the Test, as well as review the day’s play with fellow members and guests. The normal Members Reserve rules and regulations will apply with respect to dress standards and behaviour.
