The County Cricket Ground (also known as Nevil Road) is a cricket venue in Bristol, England. It is in the district of Ashley Down. The ground is home to the Gloucestershire County Cricket Club.While the ground is steeped in character, it also has the feel of an ageing ground, especially as cricket sees its popularity grow due to the continued success of Twenty20 cricket. Despite this, the ground does host One Day Internationals, usually one per year, with the addition of temporary seating to double the ground's capacity. Day–night matches are possible with the addition of temporary floodlights.Within the ground are tennis and squash courts as well as a gym, which is available to the public.
