From Sunday 24 December, until Tuesday 2 January, facilities at Sport Central will be operating under a revised timetable. During this time, from Wednesday 27 December to Sunday 31 December, a FREE five-day fitness membership is available to students wishing to stay active over the festive period.

Sport Central will be fully closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, as well as New Year’s Day – resuming operations as normal from 07:00 on Tuesday 2 January. Between 27 and 31 December, Sport Central will be open between reduced hours of 09:30 and 16:30. Coach Lane Sports Ground will also be closed on Christmas Eve and will remain closed until 2 January 2024.

When open, we are pleased to be able to offer a reduced fitness timetable, with the Small Group Exercise class running each day between 12:15 and 12:45 in the gym.

Not only this, but for those students who do not have a fitness membership but are keen to use Sport Central this December, the FREE five-day fitness membership provides a great way to do just that. Simply bring your student card along to Sport Central to get free use of the gym and pool; or escape the December weather in the sauna and steam room!
