Match days at Well Hall

Posted by

The season is well under way and the 1st XV have settled into their new home ground here at Well Hall in Eltham, and many of the upgrades and new facilities are now completed, or are nearing completion.  The new bar, the Greene King Bar is fully operational and has quickly become the focal point of post match celebrations, the new shop is open and is conveniently situated between the Clubhouse and the GK Bar, a new entrance / exit gate and ramp for cars to improve access and safety has been constructed,  and the floodlights are installed.

The Greene King Barlayout picture

Just behind the stand and almost on pitchside, the Greene King Bar is the main focus of most peoples pre and post match enjoyment and it plays host to the entertaining Man of the Match award at 6.00pm. Come on in and join the fun!

Club Bar and Presidents Guests

We have ample bar capacity at Well Hall for everyone, however the Club Bar (upstairs in the Clubhouse, nearest the car park) is reserved prematch for Friends of the Club, President’s guests, Sponsors and Opposition committee personnel. We need to restrict entry as we have limited space in that particular bar, and only a modest buffet which has been paid for by Sponsors and Friends.

This restriction does not apply post-match and of course the neighbouring bar in the Hall and the snack bar are open to all pre and post-match.

Membership Cards on Match Days

Please make sure you present your card for both your free entry to the ground and for your membership discount at the bar, and don’t be offended if you are asked for it.  We have hundreds of members, ranging from players and supporters to the youth section and with the best will in the world those working at the ticket hut or behind the bar cannot remember everyone.
