Out of interest, why aren't there any tennis courts or public basketball courts on the rye? Seems crazy given all the space and amount of interest there would be.

Adventure playground is up for let . Make a great 3 or 4 tennis courts . There is also a basketball court there .. I never understood why that's not accessible to the public . Five a side court would be great as well

Definitely would like to see the basketball court accessible to everyone as in Dulwich Park. My son loves basketball and could never understand why the nets were locked away.

Does anyone know who or how to contact someone regarding this? I would call the Southwark Council but they're almost impossible to pin down.

The completely defunct and never used bowling green area would be great for tennis courts..

Yes, I've often thought the bowling green as two tennis courts would be perfect.

No one on the forum knows who to contact? Hmmm, might have to take this onto twitter and report back.

I thought there were plans for the bowling green?

Can't remember what they were, though!

Crazy Golf I think. Sounds expensive. I'd like to see some cricket nets. Dulwich Park nets are always busy.

This solves the problem of lack of public basketball courts in the city. I have two sons and I want to introduce them to basketball and sports in general as early as possible. I built a small Playground in my yard bought some balls from play comparison blog play comparison blog and now we play every weekend, for children it is much better than sitting all day at the computer and it is very sad that so few sports grounds for children are being built and we have to get out of this situation ourselves.

A few of the more local, smaller parks have tennis or basketball courts. Harold Moody Park in Nunhead has basketball. Telegraph Hill Park has tennis courts. I've definitely seen others.

Seems a shame that they closed the bowling green area.

Isn't basketball an American thing?

Oh yes that's right, it was Crazy Golf. They had that at the Horniman over the summer I think.

But nothing seems to have been done for ages at the bowling green? Did they give up on their plans?

I'd love to have tennis courts in Peckham Rye! I live really close, but have to go to Dulwich park if I want to play.

The plans for mini golf were rejected by the council. The cost of playing was going to be well out of reach of many families. I'm not sure how successful/profitable the one in Hornimans was this past summer.

The Council is still looking for solutions for the area - however they say that it costs money to maintain the hut and they want something that will pay for its upkeep. So - tennis courts/basketball etc won't meet their approval.

The previous bowls club no longer exists and no one has come forward to start a new one.

It is a huge pity to see it sitting there unused. Friends of Peckham Rye park are hoping to install an opening near the Sexby Gardens so at least people can get into it (it is locked at the moment and not accessible). Any suggestions for its use that will meet Council approval(ie bring in revenue) would be gratefully received!
