Coventry and Warwickshire businesses encouraged to take advantage of new sports and fitness hub

Businesses from across the region are being urged to take advantage of the new state-of-the-art sport and fitness complex being created at the University of Warwick.

The new Sports and Wellness Hub, which is part of a £49 million investment in the centre and adjoining sports facilities at the University, is set to open in April 2019.

Located on campus, the centre will have free parking available for the public and will be easily accessible by road or cycle, with cycling routes into the heart of the Hub.

The University is assembling a bespoke package that will serve the business community in Coventry and Warwickshire – as it strives to be the most active campus in the UK by 2020.

The centre will include a spacious 230-station gym with inspiring woodland views and the latest cardio, resistance, free weight and functional training equipment as well as a large number of fitness classes weekly.

The 25-metre, 12-lane swimming pool will – like all facilities – also be available for community and be accessible to all with moveable floor depths and a wide range of water access options.

A cutting-edge climbing centre, featuring bouldering and speed walls, will be available, alongside six glass-backed squash courts and outdoor sports pitches.

It will feature a 12-court sports arena and a smaller four court sports hall, catering to a variety of team sports and activities.

The flexible sports arena can also serve as a large conferencing and exhibitions space, and the University is keen to drive custom from the commercial community as well as local residents and students.

Lisa Dodd-Mayne, Director of Sport & Active Communities at the University of Warwick, said: “We are committed to promoting active lifestyles, not only at the University, but through making our facilities widely available to all parts of the local community.

“A part of that is to engage with the business community and that’s why we’re encouraging businesses, and business people, to take advantage of the world-class sporting and leisure facilities we will have at our new facility.

“It will be one of the finest university sports centres in the UK and raise the bar for fitness provision in Coventry and Warwickshire.

“We are working on a set of unique packages that will cater to the leisure needs of the modern business and would ask any interested businesses to get in touch with us to find out more.”
