Upgrade Norwood Park ball court

The council is working in partnership with the Football  Association to enlarge and astroturf the ball court in Norwood Park close to Elder Road. The detailed plans costing £430,000 can be seen at a public consultation event in West Norwood Health & Leisure Centre , Devane Way SE27 0DF  on Monday 26th October from 6.30pm .

Football clubs will pay to use the new ball court marked out as one 9 a-side, two 7 a-side and three 5 a-side football pitches. The site will include a storage container for equipment. The new pitches are to act as a hub for sports organisations to run community football club sessions for: 8-12 year olds, 12 years upwards, women and girls , disabled people, young unemployed,  football coaching qualifications and space for the Brixton Bulls Rugby club.IMG_20151003_135433660

Regular sessions will be timetabled  for  free drop-in access by the local community.

BMX flatland riders call the ball court  The Green Mile (TGM)  and object to replacing the tarmac surface with astroturf. See comments on our previous blog dated 27th May 2015. Discussions are taking place with The Norwood School to find the riders an alternative venue .

Astroturf for Norwood Park

Ball court  Norwood Park

Ball court Norwood Park

The tarmac ball court in Norwood Park , by Elder Road, is due to get an upgrade to astroturf. An artificial grass surface means the ball court can be used as a pitch for competitive junior and adult football matches and training for other sports.

The council has set aside £150k to invest in sport facilities in Norwood Park. Following talks with the Football Association, Friends of Norwood Park, The Norwood School and local community sports clubs there are 2 alternative options. One option is for a junior sized pitch 97.4m x 52m and the other for a full sized pitch 106m x 70m.

A meeting on  Monday 1st June at 6:30pm at Norwood School, Crown Dale SE19 3NY will review the 2 options. Come along to find out more about the project.
