The Mayor


The Little Giants volleyball club have informed me that the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre (NSC) is the only facility in south London with multiple volleyball courts that have public access. Can you reassure Little Giants volleyball club and several other volleyball clubs that their requirements are being considered in your consultation/review and the multi-use sports hall they use will not be lost?

The Crystal Palace NSC is home to a range of sports, offering participation opportunities for all abilities.  I want to ensure that it has a long-term and sustainable future as a multi-sport venue.  The ongoing feasibility work has been reviewing what facilities are required for the NSC to best support this vision.  As part of this, a sporting facility needs assessment is underway, which has involved gathering views from key sporting stakeholders, including clubs, users of the centre and sports governing bodies, such as Volleyball England.

Early findings show that the multi-use sports hall should be retained for the use of clubs and other centre users.
