Club Accessibility


There is good accessibility for the mobility-impaired, at Crofton BC's Stubbington Bowling Green, but there are also some limitations, particularly for wheelchair users.


The car park, location and green surrounds are fully accessible by the mobility-impaired.

  • In the free public car park by our green, closest to the Club/Green entrance are two 'reduced mobility' parking spaces with appropriate dimensions, and marked with the standard International Symbol of Access, with a choice of two dropped kerbs available to get to the club entrance gate. There are other 'reduced mobility' parking spaces in this same car park, albeit further from the Club/Green entrance, plus, on an exceptional basis,'reduced mobility' parking spaces by the entrance to the Community Centre intended for their Centre users; there are accessible pathways, all with dropped kerbs, from all of these 'reduced mobility' spaces to the Club/Green entrance.
  • A step-free path then leads into the Club/Green, the green surrounds and the club buildings.

Access through the gate, and to the paths and 'banks' around the green is good.

  • Around the green, there is further bench seating, via a level path and without thresholds.
  • Immediately outside the pavilion is a flat area, with sheltered bench seats.

The buildings (clubhouse, changing rooms, equipment stores) have step thresholds of varying levels, representing a level of accessibility challenge.

  • The single-level clubhouse doorway has a low threshold, with a double-opening door. There are no raised internal doorway thresholds within the clubhouse. There are no toilets in the clubhouse building.
  • There is no designated accessible toilet on site, although there are two accessible toilets close by:
    • an accessible public toilet (Radar Key scheme) by Stubbington Green about 165 yds (150 m) from the club, along level footpaths, open 07:30-20:00 daily; it's just past the Library on the way to the Stubbington Centre shops.
    • an accessible toilet in the Crofton Community Centre (which is itself accessible) about 60 yds (50 m) from the club, along a level footpath. Please see their website for availability/opening hours.
  • The club's ladies' and men's toilets have no accessibility-specific attributes. Toilets are located in the respective changing rooms, and each such room/building has a threshold step.
  • The two equipment stores each have a threshold step entrance.

The bowling green itself has some accessibility support.

  • There are two portable steps, each with a fixed handrail, used to assist the mobility-impaired in moving between the green surround and the green itself; however, there is, regrettably, no level-surface access to the green, so 'bowling wheelchairs' cannot be readily accommodated.

Please contact us for any accessibility queries, and we'll be happy to assist.
