Parking Information

We want you to have a fantastic experience at the National Championships, so we have created this section to make sure you get the most from your visit.

A few minutes' planning ahead can make all the difference. We would encourage you to take public transport as not only is it good for the environment, but it means that you can sit back and relax on your journey.

If there is anything not covered in this section, please contact us and we will get back in touch.

Spectators are strongly encouraged to use the park and ride facilities to minimise disruption to local traffic and ensure a swift transfer to and from the National Championships. An outline of the operating hours of these services is detailed below:

Directions to the park and ride:

The address for the park and ride which is FREE TO USE for all players, officials, volunteers and spectators travelling to the National Championships is Afton Avenue, Prestwick, KA9 2AGPlease click here to use Google Maps for directions

There will be AA road signs in place on approach from all major routes in to Ayr to direct you to the park and ride.


Cars parked without a permit in coned off areas surrounding the National Centre will receive a parking fine issued by South Ayrshire Council. Cars displaying a blue badge are not exempt from this and will also be issued a parking fine.

It is important to note that the area adjacent to the Northfield Bowling Club entrance is a fire muster point, so in the interests of health and safety we advise cars who are picking up/dropping off to stop further along the street.

South Ayrshire Council parking wardens will patrol the areas throughout each event day.
