Sporting Events

St. Alban's Centre offers fantastic sports facilities, including a sports hall designed for maximum flexibility to suit a variety of sporting activities, events and tournaments.

We can also offer a range of sports on our well maintained pitches located within 70 acres of sports grounds. We have recently hosted groups holding tournaments in the following: cricket, tennis, rugby and football.

Ryedale Grand Prix 2015

Widely praised for the new Championship course and venue in 2013 and 2014, the event will once again be played out on the circuit that passes through the grounds of Ampleforth Abbey. As with last year two circuits will feature albeit with a slight reduction in the length of first circuit to ensure that spectators gain maximum benefit from the Abbey vantage point.

Working in conjunction with British Cycling we expect the event to attract about 2,000 spectators.

If you're hosting a sporting event and would like to see the facilities on offer, please contact our Events Team on 01439 766897 or
