The new sports centre is planned to sit on the corner of Bristol Road and Edgbaston Park Road. It will be a large multi-sport facility for students, staff and the local community, and will include the city’s first 50-metre swimming pool. We anticipate that the centre will cater for around 3,000 community and alumni members, as well as community clubs and groups. Find out more about the excellent quality and range of sports facilities and clubs available to the wider community.
The new sports centre will not only incorporate the city's first 50-metre swimming pool but also;
a large sports hall
a large gym
a purpose designed Performance Centre and Performance Gym
It is intended that the new sports centre will provide specialist expertise and support to talented sportsmen and women in the University, city and region, which will help us to produce future elite athletes and Olympians.
Not only will the centre cater for elite athletes but also for the needs of our students, staff, alumni, community and range of community clubs. The centre will offer a wide range of programmes and classes, including a choice of up to 200 fitness/sport classes and a learn to swim programme for all ages.
Our new gym (which will be one of the largest in the United Kingdom), will cater for a wide range of fitness needs from rehabilitation from injury/illness, various disabilities through to competitive players and elite performers.
