Newbury Sports Hub
The new Newbury Sports Hub opens next year – and here’s the first look at the new club house!
Work to deliver the new facility, which will be located at Newbury Rugby Club, has reached an important step this week with the submission of planning application for the site.
Opening next year, the Newbury Sports Hub will feature a world-class artificial turf pitch alongside floodlights, seating and the club house with four changing rooms, a board room and a function room.
he new facility will help deliver our Playing Pitch Strategy, and will provide a Step 4 facility – which means teams will have the facilities needed to play in higher leagues. It will also serve as a replacement for the Faraday Road Sports Ground, which closed ahead of the regeneration of the London Road Industrial Estate.
Councillor Howard Woollaston, our Executive Member for Culture and Leisure, said:
“The Newbury Sports Hub is an exciting new facility for the town and like many people I cannot wait for it to open next year. Support for England at the Euros, and the recent British and Irish Lions tour has shown the passion there is for watching and playing sport and this new pitch will deliver first-class facilities for playing football, rugby and more.
“Submitting a planning application is an important milestone as we progress with our plans for the Hub. Things are really beginning to progress now with the lease for the land due to be signed soon, and work on the site to get underway once planning permission is granted.”
