Abingdon School took over the management of Tilsley Park on 1 September 2014 and since then has undertaken a full programme of improvement and investment including a new 4G surface and throws area plus refurbishment of social areas. Tilsley Park now provides some of the best sporting facilities in the region. Please see the Tilsley Park website for full details.
The new 4G pitch and throws area are already in use and proving to be very popular not just with the School but with local clubs and organisations. We set out to make Tilsley Park a centre of excellence and a premier sporting venue for the community and these facilities certainly achieve this aim. The 4G pitch is certified by the RFU, RFL and FA, and complements the two existing full size ATP hockey pitches, offering all year round high quality floodlit sports facilities.
The sporting facilities currently available are:
- Athletics: eight lane, floodlit artificial surface track with javelin, shot put, discus, steeplechase, pole vault and long jump facilities. 300 seat covered grandstand
- Hockey: two, floodlit astro pitches with spectator seating
- Football: three, five-a-side floodlit astro pitches
- Rugby: 4G all weather surface
The other facilities include:
- Changing rooms
- Function room
- Licensed bar
- Free car and coach parking
