Pitches that can regain function. Pitches that have gone beyond function. Spaces that can become pitches. Impermanence of the built environment. Gaps in the cycle of utilisation. Slow time. Open systems, open spaces. Observed. Passerby.
Potential of such spaces, and the possibility that any member of the public could reactivate/change/ call them to attention Why has it not been maintained? Who should maintain it? Who has the means to maintain it? Is this public or private land? Who has the right to change things in spaces? Why would they decide to do that?

Secretgroundsman Tool List
One Third Pitch
This is a Secretgroundsman project. The site used to be a full sized football pitch. This is an attempt to make the remaining third of the pitch playable again. An area for penalty shoot-outs, practicing corners, headers and volleys, free-kicks just outside the box and for a place to sit and watch.
