Report on visit to Streatham & Marlborough Cricket Club


Photos from Alan Rowe

The above club contacted me a couple of weeks ago with an offer of using their HQ as a base for our committee meetings/club nights. Their facility is located opposite what was the Grove Inn public house on the corner of Lordship Lane and Dulwich Common.

Like us, these two clubs have many years of history, Streatham Cricket Club founded in 1805 and the Marlborough Cricket Club founded in 1870 merged in 2003 to form one large club.

As arranged 5 committee personnel in the shape of Mark Ballamy, Roy Savery, Alan Rowe and Val & Tony Peachey visited the club today to access its suitability for our needs. We met 2 of their executive officers plus 2 employees. We ascertained that the hall is available on a Monday evening and the facilities are:

Large hall which would seat approximately 70-100 people
This houses a pool table and table tennis facilities available for use.
An access from this hall onto a verandah which overlooks the cricket pitches
A separate lounge with comfy chairs/tables and TV.
A bar Roy will fill you in with the brews on offer.
On our chosen night we would have exclusive use of above.
Ample car parking and an area to park cycles.
Facilities to store club equipment.
Happy to have a club notice board and photos/pictures in the hall.
Notice/advertising board on the road entrance for the De Laune.
Roller racing could be accommodated in the main hall this would need to be organised to ensure sufficient bar staff are on duty.

At the moment the hall is showing signs of wear and tear which has been exacerbated by the recent wet/windy weather, however plans are in place for a rebuild of the pavilion within the next 2 years this refurbishment/rebuild will be undertaken during the winter months so that their regular weekend cricket matches are not interrupted. Some immediate remedial work is scheduled to be completed during the next month before the 2014 cricket season starts.

During our hour long visit we were made very welcome. All five of us came away feeling very positive of the opportunities on offer, and would favour a monthly booking, alternating social and committee meeting usage.
