Welcome To Mersham Sports Club


Club EGM to discuss Charity Status.

Calling all members- 

There will be an EGM on Monday 17th December 7pm at the Clubhouse to discuss changing the clubs status from CASC (community amateur sports club) to CIO (charity incorporated organisation). 

The Sports Club Committee are proposing that the club changes its status to help with grant funding applications towards the new pavilion and additional land that we have been working towards for the past decade, and require the approval of members to do so. 

Please attend if you are able to, we would welcome thoughts and input from all members.


Club Devlopment Plans

The Sports Club Committee has long term plans to improve the facilities and the services that we provide our members. We have been working towards these for the past decade and with the completion of phase 1, we are now able to move on to phases 2 and 3, plans are finally starting to come to fruition and hopefully in the not to distant future we will be near completion, providing fantastic facilities for all. Fulll details of the Clubs development plan and drawings of these are available by clicking here.

We need the support of all members if we are to acheive these plans, please support the club in d anyway you can by attending training and matches, supporting club events, volunteering if you can, even donations or sponsorship, any help would be greatly appreciated and help to acheive our goals for the benefit of all.

Phase 1- New Entrance

Phase one of the Club development Plans was completed in 2017, the building of a new safer entrance to  the ground and extending the car park, taking a lot longer than anticipated after various issues with build. This was financed by club funds a long with a donation of £5000 from the Parish Council at a cost of nearly £30,000. 

Phase 2- Additional Land 

Phase 2 involves the acquisition of additional land to expand our playing area. The current land is in constant use throughout the year and as a result is in desperate need of some TLC.

With the increased playing area we would also be able to provide more sporting provision for the local community and would not be so reliant on hiring additional facilities. Discussions with the Church commission who own all of the land surounding the ground have been ongoing since 2008, we have finally made some head way and there is an offer on the table of an additional 6 acres (approx). Once purchased we will need to make this fit for purpose.

Phase3- New Sports and recreation centre

Phase 3 is the construction of a new Sports and Recreation Centre. the current pavilion was originally built in the 1967 with an estimated lifespan of around 20 years which it has well surpassed. We have extended and renovated it as much as humanly possible and unfortunatly it is no longer adequate for the needs of the club. We are planning to build a new sports and recreation centre with improved facilities and disabled access able to be used by the whole community.

Planning permission for the new centre has now been approved and our focus now turns to fund raising! We have appointed a fund raising committee to oversea this, if you would like to support them or make a donation to the club please contact;
