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
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
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
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
Notice/advertising board on the road entrance for the De
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.
