Message for all Cheltenham Bookmakers

As per the meeting notes from the Bookmaker’s Liaison Committee Meeting held on 2 October 2019 displayed on the AGT website, this is a brief reminder that there will no longer be a Badge Box in operation during any future race meeting at Cheltenham Racecourse.

In line with the practice that has been in operation for several years at The Festival, bookmakers badge purchase - Daily Betting Badges, Annual Marketing Fee payments, AGT Daily Fee payments are now available only online, along with admission tickets - for all Cheltenham race meetings. Those bookmakers on The Festival List will be aware that badges are available in advance, now up until 10.00 on the morning of racing.

Should a bookmaker decide not to attend the race meeting prior to pitching in, having bought badges online, a full refund for unused badges / tickets will be provided upon request from This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it (order number and badge/ticket details required).

For full instructions please follow this link.

I look forward to welcoming on-course bookmakers to Cheltenham in 2020 and beyond, and take this opportunity to wish you and your staff a happy and prosperous New Year.

David Mackinnon
Heads of Operations

Paul Dolan will be attending the Aintree BLC on 4th February 2020 and should any Bookmaker (including non BRBA Members) wish to raise any matters please email the office.

Urgent Notice to ALL Racecourse Bookmakers.

Due to a number of Bookmakers failing a recent age verification test, the Gambling Commission’s Enforcement Department has written to those failing.

Our own testing results are still disappointing and we must improve and if you have any doubts about a customer appearing to be under 21, you need to challenge them to prove that they are at least 18.
29/07/2019

All On course Bookmakers should be aware that as a result of a warning by the Gambling Commission the BRBA have engaged Serve Legal to perform AV tests on ALL Northern Racecourses. Regrettably the pass rates for ALL those tested are still below expectation and we must warn ALL Bookmakers to be more vigilant. Obviously we are writing to BRBA Members to give them their results.
22/07/2019

Following the robust warning from the Gambling Commission on the poor pass rates with AV testing in our sector we have engaged Serve Legal to do random tests in the North and the first results throughout June are very disappointing and we will be writing inform members of their results.

Would ALL involved please continue to be vigilant as your licence is at risk.
THINK 21!

The FRB’s Solicitors reply is attached which unfortunately is self explanatory. All updates will be posted on this website.
