Abingdon Sports and Leisure
For information on all our facilities including Tilsley Park, the Sports Centre and the Amey Theatre please visit the Abingdon Sports and Leisure website where you can see what’s on, book classes and courses and find out about membership and hiring our facilities.
Tilsley Park offers some of the best sports facilities in the area including all-weather pitches for rugby, athletics, hockey and football. Facilities are available for hire.
The Sports Centre has a multi-sports hall for badminton, volleyball, basketball and indoor hockey and has space for four cricket lanes. There are two squash courts, a gym, a climbing wall and a large multi-purpose studio, as well as an eight lane indoor swimming pool. It is open to the public for use out of school hours and during the holidays. There is a range of exercise classes for all abilities and we host sports courses, holiday activities, junior swim sessions and birthday parties.
The Amey Theatre has undergone extensive refurbishment. It seats approximately 450 and is equipped with modern stage lighting and sound facilities. Supporting the main auditorium is a range of spaces including a conservatory style foyer and box office. The installation of a large projection screen, 7.1 surround sound and a satellite link in the Amey Theatre has enabled it to be used as a cinema including live screening events such as NT Live, RSC Live and ROH Live, which are all available for public booking.
Abingdon Sports and Leisure is responsible for the development of the Abingdon Foundation’s sport and leisure facilities (the Sports Centre, Tilsley Park, Amey Theatre and a variety of other lettings).
