Latest updates on our facilities, memberships and programmes

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 22 February, we are putting together a plan to reopen each of our sports facilities at the earliest opportunity permitted by government, National Governing Body and local regulations.
Based on the new government roadmap, we expect this to be from 29 March for some facilities but we will confirm our timeline for reopening shortly.
Following the reopening, we will continue to ensure that all such facilities remain Covid-secure and that all safety guidelines are followed. 
We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

In line with the government's recent announcement, we closed all University sports facilities and the programmes that operate within them as of yesterday, 4th of January 2021. All facilities will remain closed until further noticeas per government restrictions.
