Sydney: Jan 8, 2014

The Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) management is standing by its decision to refuse entry to a 35-year-old woman for wearing an above-the-knee hemline.

Lynda Reid, who has been a member of the SCG for 25 years, was sent away after turning up to queue for entry on Sunday because of the alleged inappropriateness of her dress. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, following the incident on day two of the fifth Ashes Test, Reid wrote to the SCG Trust expressing her disappointment

She challenged SCG management to come up with any ”coherent basis” on which they could claim her attire was not ”respectable and appropriate”. She asked that her SCG membership be cancelled, her yearly fees refunded, and for her two children to be removed from the waiting list for membership, the report said. According to the report, Reid received an official letter in response, granting her a fee refund and stating that her two children would be taken off the list. The letter stated that the SCG regularly reviews its dress regulations without offering an apology to Reid.
