COVID-19 Update | Sport Central & Coach Lane Sports Centre

Updated 13 March 2020

Although classroom-based teaching and learning activity will be replaced by online delivery from Monday 16 March the University campus including our sports facilities remain open.

The Sport Central gym and other facilities are open as usual for members and users.

We have however made the decision to cancel or postpone some larger upcoming events and external bookings. These organisations and individuals have been contacted directly. We will continue to monitor and make decisions on upcoming events and activities daily. For further information on current and developing actions from Northumbria University with regards COVID – 19 please visit the University website

Student Sport Club and Campus Leagues fixtures and training will continue as usual (pending further communication from BUCS regarding centralised competitions changes).

We have made the decision to cancel our upcoming Easter Kids Camps.

We are following UK national guidance from Public Health England (PHE) and Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), and other local and national Public Health guidance as appropriate regarding Covid-19 With this in mind we wanted to remind and update you on our hygiene procedures in our gym and other environments at Sport Central.

👉 We have increased our cleaning operations within the facility including increased wiping down of gym equipment 3 times a day

👉 As usual we need YOU to continue to wipe down the gym equipment before and after you use it

👉 We advise that you wash your hands before and after using the gym

👉 We have now installed an alcohol gel unit on entry to the gym


We will keep this artcle updated as and when the situation develops
