Sports centre closure dates

March 4th, 2015

Following planning approval, construction will soon begin on the new multimillion pound David Ross Sports Village. The existing sports centre will be closed and demolished to make way for the new complex which is expected to be completed by September 2016.

To minimise any disruption to services during the construction of the new sports centre, a temporary facility has been built on Nightingale Field to replace the existing sports and fitness centres.

In the coming weeks, all indoor University park sports activity will move to the Nightingale Field facility for the duration of the building work on the new sports complex. The swimming pool will remain unaffected throughout the construction phase.

Nightingale Field will house the following sports areas and facilities:

  • 12 badminton courts
  • 3 squash courts
  • 2 studio spaces
  • Fitness suite
  • A small number of changing & shower facilities (inc. disabled toilet)

All fitness and strength stations currently available in the Fitness Centre, plus all strength and conditioning equipment housed within the Sports Centre, will be moved to the Nightingale Field fitness suite.

Sports centre closure

University Park Sports Centre will close at 10.30pm Sunday 22 March. Services will resume in the Nightingale Field sports centre from 6pm on Monday 23 March.

Fitness centre closure

University Park Fitness Centre will close on Tuesday 31 March. Services will resume in the Nightingale Field fitness suite on Friday 3 April.

Sports and fitness centres at Jubilee, Sutton Bonington and King’s Meadow will be open as usual throughout the construction period. To find out more about the David Ross Sports Village and for updates throughout the build please visit UoN Sport.
