What's Lyneham like right now?

I'm going to be passing out in the next 30 days and I have a couple of questions about Lyneham. Specifically, I'm really keen to get into the sports side of things. What's that like right now? I'm guessing it's not really a thing right now. And what's general life like at phase 2 Lyneham right now / near future?

Thanks for any insights

I have heard REME Lyneham is better than Bordon & Arbourfield?
More modern, better accommodation and training facilities.

Having visited both Arbourfield & Bordon both were past their best.
 
For what it's worth, I live four miles from Lyneham. I can say there was huge investment in training facilities and accommodation. Being an old airfield it's a big place. Nice REME museum too. Outside, the kebab shops, chippy etc are ok, it's a nice area (apart from Swindon).
