Sat in the sports hall all on my own in the morning, my noise metre recorded a noise level of 53 dB’s. [Quiet / Light Auto Traffic / urban daytime]

Once the action started it maxed out at 102 dB’s for the women and 100 dB’s for the Men.  [B-747-200 Takeoff / Blow Dryer / Helicopter / Chain Saw / Subway Train].

FYI The event hooter is regulated at 100 dB’s (a noise safety requirement)

grass area_webOut side, in the picnic and sun bathing area, it was much quieter.
