English Institute of Sport
The Abbey is home to the English Institute of Sport Performance centre providing training facilities for a range of Olympic medal winning athletes.
The strength and conditioning facilities are designed specifically for elite athletes and deliver optimum performance across a range of sports.
After a £7million investment from Sport England the facility was opened by Helen Grant MP, Minister for Sport, who said: “Bisham Abbey is an iconic venue in British sport. Its facilities have helped many of our elite athletes to prepare and train before representing their country in major sporting competitions.
This impressive redevelopment project, funded by Sport England National Lottery money, will continue to make sure our athletes remain in the best possible condition to be successful. I’m also really pleased to see that it will offer excellent sporting facilities to be used by the community.”
