UV and Heat Protection

The Melbourne Cricket Club reminds you to think about your protection from the sun.

Did you know that two of every three Australian's who live to 75 years of age are affected by skin cancer and that your skin can suffer permanent damage after two hours of sun exposure?

Do you have:

  • A broad-brimmed hat?
  • SFP 15+ Sun Screen? (don't forget to reapply every two hours)
  • SFP Lip Balm?
  • Clothing protection?
  • Sunglasses?

The Melbourne Cricket Club also reminds you that heat illness can be fatal if symptoms are ignored such as nausea, dizziness, clumsiness, collapse and convulsions.

To avoid illness:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Wear a broad brimmed hat
  • If your seat is under the sun, take regular breaks in the shade
  • Wear loose fitted, loose weave clothing
  • If you do feel ill, please seek assistance from our First Aid volunteers.
