On Monday 9 October, SU Sports Officer Ellie Martin officially opened the new Claycroft Activity Zone - an outdoor sports facility that features exercise and climbing equipment, trampolines, swings and more. Over the summer we worked on both this and a new water-based hockey pitch on Westwood campus, helping to make Warwick Sport's vision for Warwick as the most physically active campus community in the UK by 2020 a reality.
These two projects go hand in hand with our ongoing work to create a new Sport and Wellness Hub, which will serve as the main centre for sporting activity on campus.
Students and Staff at the University of Warwick who wish to join the Sports Centre can now become tourists in their home University gym with the UNIversal Gym Membership. It is valid with Warwick Sport Gym memberships only (starting from £225 per 12month).

A hugely successful week of classes and events and over 360 women attending. We say thank you to everyone who participated, spread the word or helped on the project. More work in the pipeline as we reach to address the imbalance of fewer women than men playing sport regularly – two million fewer 14-40 year olds in total. Despite this, 75 per cent say they want to be more active (Sport England).
