The most impressive thing of all, being the manner of their victory.
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.

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.
