Multi-million pound sports centre revamp almost complete

A £6m revamp of Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre is almost complete.

A new 100-seater restaurant to be named The Engine Room, cafe and workout studio is due to open to the public at the centre in Marlow Road within the next fortnight.

An accommodation block of 50 double bedrooms including eight bedrooms with disabled access will also be opened around the same time as well as new changing rooms.

Two new football pitches were also built as part of the multi-million pound upgrade and are already in use.

One pitch is an exact replica of the pitch at Wembley stadium in both size and surface.

The other is a 3G pitch, an all weather surface similar to astro turf, and was used for the first time on Sunday for a five-a-side tournament organised by Get Berkshire Active.

The event involved nine teams from Berkshire business fighting it out in a round robin tournament.

Building work on the development began in March last year.

Sport England were unable to confirm an exact date opening date.
