Why is the increase so big?/Why 10%?
The SportsPark reviews its fees every summer and prices often increase by between 3-5%. Charges were frozen during the Covid-19 pandemic.
This 10% increase is in response to global inflationary costs. We appreciate everyone is feeling financial pressure right now and the University is no exception.
This increase is necessary to address increased costs but also to fund investment to provide a better service for our members. We are at a point where investment in sport across the University is needed. This fee increase will allow us to maintain and improve our facilities and services.
Our prices remain competitive in the region and the SportsPark continues to provide facilities for a wider variety of sports than can be found in most other locations locally.
