Warwick Sport has a vision “to become the most physically active campus community by 2020”. To support this vision the University is investing significantly in new sport and wellness facilities across the campus to ensure everyone can get active every day.
These exciting new facilities which will be open in autumn 2018, will offer a Sports and Wellness Hub that includes a new 16 badminton court sports hall, a 12 lane 25m swimming pool, one of the largest gyms in higher education, an enhanced climbing and bouldering walls, squash courts, flexible studio spaces, a welcoming café and outdoor 3G sports pitches and netball courts.
Alongside the Sport and Wellness Hub the University will also be building a number of spokes across the campus and upgrading existing facilities to encourage the university community to be active in all areas of the campus. These include upgraded walking, running and cycling routes, outdoor activity zone and upgrades to pitches. These facilities as well as being open to students and staff will also be available to the general public as we seek to engage more of our local community.
Our sports facilities are open to alumni
Our key objective is supporting our University community to be physically active and once you have left Warwick we still want to support you in being active every day. To support this all alumni quality for staff membership pricing which is heavily discounted. For just £70 for the year you could swim in our pool or jog a few laps around our track. You could book a court to play badminton, squash, table tennis or try any of our weekly Rock Up sessions ranging from indoor cricket to Ultimate Frisbee. You could even join one of our termly leagues such as 6-a-side football or basketball. If you wanted to use the Gym, it would be £20 per month but would include all the benefits listed above.
