David Ross Sports Village update

October 3rd, 2016

David Ross Sports Village welcomed its first gym-goers on Monday 3 October, with the 200-station fitness suite and three studios now all fully open for UoN sport and fitness members.

As well as working out on the latest fitness equipment supplied by industry leaders Life Fitness, members can book onto over a hundred weekly group exercise classes taking place at David Ross Sports Village as well as the Jubilee and Sutton Bonington sports centres.

Dan Tilley, Director of Sport, commented “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome our first members into the David Ross Sports Village during this first week of term and we hope they enjoy the incredible facilities on offer.”

“Our team and the building contractors are working hard to facilitate the opening of the remainder of the world-class facilities here at the David Ross Sports Village and it’s so exciting to see all the investment and hard work coming together. We thank our members for their patience during this transitional period and look forward to welcoming them for their first visit!”

The rest of the Sports Village will continue to open on a phased schedule, with the sports hall, sports café and climbing wall set to be fully operational from Monday 10 October. Members are asked to check the UoN Sports web page and the UoN sport social media channels for updates.
