Wheelchair Accessible Venues: After taking advice from Activity Alliance, The Angling Trust have assessed a proportion of the most accessible fisheries for Fish’O’Mania 2019. A Wheelchair Accessible peg has a flat base and good access to the peg without steep slopes or potholes. However, the Angling Trust does insist that all Wheelchair Accessible ticket holders are required to have an assistant to accompany the angler whilst moving to and from their peg, and fishing is undertaken at the angler’s own risk. In addition, the Angling Trust would advise all anglers looking to purchase tickets at wheelchair accessible venues to visit the fishery prior to the match, to see the pegs that are available to them.
The wheelchair accessible venues for 2019 are: Woodland View, Lindholme Lakes, Partridge Lakes, Gold Valley Lakes & The Oaks Fishery. To purchase a Wheelchair Accessible ticket please navigate to the qualifier you wish to fish and choose "Wheelchair Accessible Ticket" at the bottom of the page.

Cancellation/Refunds: Please note: If you wish to cancel a ticket, please inform by email, and include your name, the name of the qualifier you would like to cancel, your membership number & post code. We require 7 days notice prior to the qualifier in order to process a refund. Any notification outside of this time scale will not be entitled to receive a refund. Please note: There is no secondary market for the sale or transfer of any tickets.

Round 2 ticket sales close Tuesday 23rd April 9:30am for this Qualifier (due to Bank Holiday Monday). After online ticket sales have closed, anglers may turn up on spec on the day to try and purchase any available tickets (from any no-shows or remaining online tickets), but this is strictly on a first-come, first-served basis, and organisers cannot sell tickets in advance of the match. Please note that tickets cannot be guaranteed if turning up on spec.

On the qualifiers there will be dedicated drawing procedures to ensure that an angler fishing from a wheelchair can access as many pegs as possible. Can anglers please ensure that they arrive with plenty of time before the draw.
Please note: If the 5 allocated wheelchair accessible tickets are not used then they will be made available on the day and put back in the main allocation of tickets.
