The Existing Dome

Chippenham Sports Club is a community-based trust which has provided a wide range of sports and community services in Chippenham since 1937. Offering facilities for recreational and competitive sports for everyone from beginners to professional athletes, as well as fostering a close connection with the community and local schools. However, the current sports dome is coming to the end of its life and holds insufficient spectator seating, restricting the type of tournaments held on site. Also, there are no changing rooms which means members have to go to the clubhouse and use their facilities

The Proposal

The building has been designed with flexibility in mind. In the main hall, there are multiple court layout options and an allowance for a phased development approach, ensuring the club can expand over time. These developments will encourage more community involvement in team sport, with a plethora of opportunities for spectating or participating. The proposed design also includes studio classroom spaces which would allow academic activity to take place on site, such as A-level and GCSE Sport Science classes

Who We Are?

Chippenham Sports Club now has over two thousand members across the sporting and social sections. It supports community activity through its work with the NHS, local clubs and activity groups such as Pilates, Zumba, Sit fit, Little Kickers, Badminton and Dodge Ball, providing fitness and social opportunities in Chippenham for those aged 0-100+. The club has developed as a well placed centre for social and sporting events such as Chippenham Half Marathon, celebrations, birthdays and more. Over the years, the club has evolved to encompass a number of sports with multiple facilities including a clubhouse, bowls club and sports ‘dome’. However, as the club grows in popularity, larger and more developed facilities are required. This proposal seeks to address this issue and create a new and improved home for the sports club and all associated organisations
