Sports Hall of Fame - Best Sports Halls Near Streatham

Streatham is commonly referred to as St.Reatham and has been ‘up and coming’ for as long as anyone can remember. It was once home to the enviable ‘Pratts’ department store as well as Streatham Megabowl. Sadly both of these made way for housing and it looked like Streatham was heading towards irrelevancy. However with house prices becoming astronomical in neighbouring Clapham, Balham and Wandsworth, Streatham has seen a huge resurgence in the last few years. Young 20 somethings, newlyweds and families are flocking to the area leading to an increased number of delis, cafes and pubs on Streatham High Street.

These demographics require sports facilities so if there was ever a reason for compiling a list of community sports halls near Streatham, this was it.

1. Dunraven School

Dunraven School is located on Leigham Court Road and has a large indoor sports hall which is ideal for badminton, 5 a side football and basketball in particular as it has an electronic scoreboard. Streatham Fencing Club is a big user of the facilities with sessions a couple of times a week. 

 

2. City Heights Academy 

City Heights is further towards Tulse Hill and off Christchurch Road, with a very new sports hall as well as multi-use games area. Hire rates are very reasonable and the sports hall is ideal for badminton and football. 

 

3. St Martin in the Fields School

St Martin in the Fields School have only recently started to dabble in the facility lettings arena with a very smart sports hall available to block book.   

 

4. La Retraite School

La Retraite School has been receiving community lettings for many years and is located in between Streatham Hill and Clapham South.
