CSSC Games FAQs
Your questions answered!
When will I receive confirmation of my place?
You will receive confirmation as soon as you have made payment online.
I have other questions, who do I contact?
Please contact the CSSC Events team via email or by phone on 01494 888438, 439, 407, 434, 417.
Apart from the events, what else does the CSSC Games have to offer?
The events are a large part of the CSSC Games but having a good time is also important. Entertainment will be provided on the Thursday and Friday nights. Friday night is the 'main event' and the theme will be Heroes and Villains - fancy dress is encouraged but not compulsory! Alternatively there will be a quiet bar available to enjoy a drink and a chat with your team.
Will I be able to get 'special leave' to attend the CSSC Games?
Presently within the Civil Service, time off is increasingly becoming an issue. Special leave can only be granted at the discretion of your line manager.
Is parking available, if so, is there a cost?
Parking is available in the Loughborough University campus and there’s no charge as this is included in your entry fee. The main carpark to use is Car Park 1.
What happens if I want to play but can only get half a team together, or if it just me that wants to play?
This is a common occurrence and we often have teams who are incomplete. As a result we will do our best to make up composite teams and match part entries. Get in touch with the Events Team on 01494 888438, 439, 434, 407, 417 or via email.
What is the standard of play, will I / we be good enough?
The CSSC Games is open to all members regardless of their standard. The sports organisers arrange their competitions with this in mind. We do get some members who enjoy their sport at a high level but the majority just want to be a part of the CSSC Games and enjoy themselves.
