Durdans Park Cricket Ground Regeneration

Ramgarhia Sports and Social Club By Ramgarhia Sports and Social Club

We are building a new cricket playing facility in the heart of Southall, built to be accessible and open to all, managed by a well-established community run sports club.

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Ramgarhia Sports and Social Club (RSSC) is working in partnership with the London Borough of Ealing (LBE) to regenerate the derelict Durdans Park Cricket Ground for public use. This site has been known for anti-social behaviour and through consultation with local residents and the local ward forums we have gained support for our project. The construction of a new pavilion was recently completed with finance raised through grant funding and contributions from LBE. The pavilion includes high quality changing facilities, toilets, kitchen and a social hall which can be used for social events and well-being classes. The cricket pitch and outfield has been re-laid to English and Wales Cricket Board standards and will be ready for the 2018 cricket season. A 5-a-side football pitch has also been added on the site to provide football training facility for juniors. The completed facility will provide a safe and cohesive environment for the public to socialise, take part in and enjoy sports.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install 2 outdoor professional county standard cricket nets
  • Fit a new access gate on the south perimeter of the site
  • Purchase new tables and chairs, and other furniture for the social hall

Why it's a great idea:

Durdans Park is located in Southall, an area that suffers from multiple forms of economic and social deprivation. Over 80% of Southall’s population is from an ethnic minority background, with people from South East Asia, mainly India and Pakistan who are also known for their passion and love of cricket. Ealing’s Sports Facility Strategy 2012–2021, states that overall Ealing’s cricket facilities are not currently of the required standard to meet the needs and demands for cricket, particularly in Southall. Durdans park had been derelict for over 10 years. RSSC plans to reinstate the ground and provide affordable activities for the local community. The nearest cricket facility is at Spikes Bridge Park and serves another part of the borough. Durdans Park is located in one of the most deprived wards in the borough and therefore the offer of affordable recreational activities in this locality is important.

Steps to get it done:

  • Confirm cricket training nets installation services with third party supplier
  • Confirm gate installation services with third party supplier
  • Install the two county standard cricket training nets
  • Install the new gate for southern perimeter
  • Purchase new folding tables, chairs and other furniture for the social hall

The project will create greater choice for the wider community to participate in sports and recreational activities in a safe and secure environment, under the guidance of qualified coaches. The project will increase wider community cohesion and will help to improve the health of the community, through health awareness education.
