About Wandgas

The Wandgas sports ground was developed in 1938 as part of the SEGAS sports association provided sports and social facilities for the gas industry employees. A certain number of local people have always been allowed to join the club and participate.

In 1985 a new pavilion was built and as the gas industry members reduced the number of local members increased. In 1997 the Wandgas Sports and Social Club was formed.

  • All committee members are elected annually.
  • Membership is open to all subject to committee approval and currently costs £40 per annum.

Club Objectives

The company memos and articles set out the club rules and its aims. The club sets out to provide cheap high quality facilities to the local community. We want local footballers and cricketers of all ages to come to the club to enjoy their sport and a wide range of family social activities. We have introduced sport to the local young peopled by liaison with local schools and other youth groups and sport boards.

WSSCL is committed to fully supporting both the sports of football and cricket at the ground since this was the basis for the original agreement with British Gas when we purchased the facility.

Wandgas has a determination to retain the site as an open field sports facility for the local community as our key objective and we have an open entry low cost membership policy.


Community

We allow open access to the ground for Linden Bridge School and will allow any local group reasonable access. Contact has been made with sports development officers at Epsom & Ewell and we will foster our relationship with the local authority.

We have community football for 5 and 6 year olds every Saturday morning. The planned 3G surface will provide vital access to training facilities in periods of bad weather.

Several Special Education Needs (SEN) schools already have an association with Wandgas through our annual 5-a-side tournament and we are well aware of the significance of the students being able to participate in a football tournament for the first time ever and this is expected to increase with the development of the 3G surface.

Wandgas have already helped these students move from no football to competing against other schools and has achieved the main objective of giving those who don’t normally get the chance, an opportunity to play football in an organised manner.

The Wandgas disability teams are made up of children with a variety of special education needs, such as Autism, Asperger’s, ADHD, Epilepsy, Dyspraxia, Cerebral Palsy, and Downs Syndrome – some with associated hearing problems.
