Due to the exceptional circumstances linked to COVID-19 the University has taken the decision to close its SportsPark Facilities until further notice. This is in line with the Government’s guidelines on social distancing to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We are working extremely hard to minimise disruption and cost to our members.

From 10pm on Friday 20th March 2020 we will be freezing ALL SportsPark memberships

We look forward to welcoming you all at the SportsPark soon.

If you wish to cancel please cancel directly with your bank to avoid your membership restarting when we re-open.

No, we will be wavering all joining fees for the first month after we re-open.

We will be adding the closure period to the end of all annual subscriptions on re-opening so you will not lose any days.
