The exclusive tour of the Sports and Wellbeing hub at Warwick University that took place ahead of its official opening in April 2019.
With the ambitious goal to have the most physically active campus community in the UK by 2020, offering the world-class sporting experience you’d expect of a world-class University the tour will be conducted by Lisa Dodd-Mayne Warwick’s Director of Sport & Active Communities who has been closely involved in the project.
The £50m facility takes the form of a “hub and spokes” model. The new Sports facility is the main centre for sporting activity on campus, with the existing developed and enhanced facilities connected to it as “spokes”.
The state-of-the-art facility comprises a new sports hall, a flexible 12-lane swimming pool, fitness suites, the UK’s largest gym facility in the HE sector, climbing and bouldering walls, squash courts, flexible studio spaces, a welcoming café and outdoor 3G sports pitches and netball courts. It will also be the official training ground of Coventry’s Wasps Netball super-league team.
