Closure of the Northern buildings at Gosling Sports Park
Gosling Sports Park has recently given notice that the Northern Sports Hall will be closing permanently 31st March 2019. This affects many Welwyn Hatfield Community Badminton Network Clubs and sessions: Knebworth Inclusive BC, The DKway Academy, a number of unaffiliated clubs, and several No Strings and junior sessions. The badminton hall is also used by Welwyn Garden schools for whom the site is essential for curriculum and after school activities: some 20 primary schools and at least 2 secondary schools use the facility on several occasions each year.
There are 4 public sports halls in Hatfield with a total of 23 badminton courts but only the one hall open to the public in the daytime in Welwyn Garden City and that is Gosling with 5 courts: it is a unique and indispensable resource to Welwyn Garden City.
We hope they will reconsider, or at least give us the opportunity to discuss it and perhaps find alternative solutions and a petition to stop the closure has been set up HERE.
Please let us know your thoughts. And meanwhile you can find more information on the WHSPAA and the SaveGosling FaceBook pages.
Gosling management has arrange three information meetings in the Trampolining hall with their General Manager Vishal Karia on:
Monday 7th January, 6-7pm
Wednesday 9th January, 1-2pm
Thursday 10th January, 11am-12pm
