I agree wholeheartedly with what you've written here. It's a reflection of over a decade of lack of vision, ambition and investment in what should be a showcase of a public sporting facility. The bowls itself has declined as the popularity of the resident bowling clubs failed to replace members. Perhaps there is only the need for one well maintained bowls green? But throughout last summer it was always well used by young people throughout the weekend and there is surely demand to support one green.
For the other green, some of us have repeated suggested that it be converted to an all weather surface which could be used by Playball during the day, thus freeing up 2 sometimes 3 tennis courts for hire. Then they could be for other sports such as hockey, mini-tennis, touchtennis all of which could be used to raise income. One point is that the ten's of thousands of pounds raised in tennis court fees have not been ringfenced, and disappear into Lambeth somewhere. You only need to take a look at the pavilion and toilets to see that investment has been miserly at best.
Please support the CCMAC in securing the future of a bowling green and a positive, planned future for the facility as a whole.
