NEWS FLASH: Huntingdon Racecourse commits to accessibility
@ has become one of the first sporting venues in Britain to give disabled people and carers a Detailed Accessibility Guide on its facilities via @, the UK’s leading provider of access information.
The initiative follows extensive site visits to all 15 of the Jockey Club’s racecourses and its historic @ in Newmarket.
The online guides are available via the Huntingdon Racecourse, Jockey Club and AccessAble websites and analyse facilities ranging from car parking spaces and viewing ramps to hearing loops and lighting levels.
Paul Fisher, Chief Executive of Jockey Club Racecourses said, “We have posted information about access at our courses on our own websites for many years. But as society’s needs change we have been listening to our racegoers who want more information before visiting our courses. We hope that, by partnering with AccessAble and making even more of this information so easy to find online, people will be able to make their own choices on the best areas of our venues to visit and book tickets for our racedays with confidence.”
