Gerard Buxton Sports Hub Officially Open

On 5 September 2015, the Gerard Buxton Sports Hub was officially opened to the public, with Royal Wootton Bassett Sports Association (RWBSA) President George Tuckett cutting the ribbon. The £6 million state-of-the-art facility houses a full sized 3G GreenFields Evolution XQ 60 pitch, six floodlit tennis courts, new changing room pavilion, with an additional two cricket pitches and four real grass football pitches – all of which were installed by GreenFields.

"Relocation to this fantastic new facility is the culmination of many years work by the football club and wider RWBs, and will provide the football club with a quality stadium pitch and youth pitches to support our Community club."

Andy Walduck, Chairman, Gerard Buxton Sports Hub

Royal Wootton Bassett Town FC, who in total run 23 teams in senior, youth and women’s leagues, are set to use Gerard Buxton Sports Hub both for their training sessions and competitive matches. The club have previously had issues regarding their fixtures, with more than 75% of the clubs teams having to play games and matches outside of their home ground due to a lack of patch capacity – the new full sized pitch and four grass pitches mean that this will no longer be a problem.

The provision of the Gerard Buxton Sports Hub will also be an invaluable tool in improving grassroots sport in the area, and encourage young people to be fit and active, with the wide variety of sports now available. We sincerely hope the residents of Royal Wootton Bassett enjoy their new facilities, and the best of luck to Royal Wootton Bassett Town FC!
