Security

The safety and security of our spectators are very important to us and our security plans are regularly reviewed to ensure they remain in line with the latest threat level and recommendations from Nottinghamshire Police and our security advisors. 

During the tournament, we would ask everyone arriving to remain patient, follow the instructions given by our Security Stewards and allow plenty of time for bag search entry checks. Please check our official social media channels and website for any further updates and information. 

Our Event Volunteers are spread all over the tournament grounds. They are here to help you enjoy your visit, so don’t be surprised if they pop up to say hello if you look lost.

We hope you have a fantastic day at the Nature Valley Open, but if you do see something which doesn't look right, please tell the closest Volunteer or Security Steward, who will be more than happy to help.

During the tournament, we would ask everyone arriving at the Nottingham Tennis Centre to allow enough time for security checks, and to check our TwitterFacebook and website for any further updates and information.
