The 21st century sports pavilion is set to renovate facilities and increase the opportunities available for the whole of the community.

Bristol & District Rugby Football Combination joined forces with Bristol City Council to develop the new modern two-storey clubhouse and two all-weather pitches for rugby and football, replacing 1950s changing rooms and underutilised, out of date playing fields.

The funds for this £5.2m project have come from the sale for housing development of part of the Combinations land. 

University of the West of England have recently joined the project bringing further capital and they will use the facility for student sport mid-week.

Work began at the end of 2016 on the council’s playing fields off Bonnington Walk, which is home to Bishopston RFC, and the adjacent fields owned by Bristol & District Rugby Football Combination, which are home to Ashley Down Old Boys RFC and Lockleaze Community Football Club.#

The development will provide huge benefits by broadening the range of activities available to the local community & improve health and employment benefits.
