Bisham to Benefit from Upgrade

Bisham to Benefit from £6m Upgrade

by James Skitt - 21.01.13

World-leading sports facilities at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre, home to one of the English Institute of Sport’s (EIS) High Performance Centres, are set for a £6 million makeover, Sport England have announced.

The site, managed by Serco on behalf of Sport England, home to over 100 athletes that competed at London 2012 as well as community users, is set to benefit from a new artificial grass pitch, the redevelopment of two existing grass pitches, a new dedicated changing pavilion and improvements to accommodation with 50 new high quality double rooms and catering facilities.

EIS Regional Director, South, Richard Parker said: “The continual development of the Bisham facilities is excellent news for the EIS and the sports we support.

“We work closely with Sport England to create an elite environment for the athletes to train in, demonstrated by the success in the recent Olympics and Paralympics.

“The new accommodation is the next stage to create a truly world class sport facility. The athletes training here help inspire the next generation of athletes using the community facilities, a great example of Games legacy.”

The cost of the proposed improvements of around £6 million will be met through Sport England National Lottery funding.

Sport England Property Director, Charles Johnston, said: “These improvements are a major part of our plans to ensure Bisham remains at the forefront of sporting excellence for both grassroots participants and elite athletes.”
