About the Sports Centre

The Sports Centre, designed by Arup Associates, has a large lobby and seating area with sizeable TV screens. From this area, you can see the spacious fitness suite, with its full range of state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment, including accessible kit such as ski ergs and hand bikes.

Members can use our impressive strength and conditioning room, with free-weights platforms and a two-lane plyometric track.

At the core of the Centre is a large sports hall which measures 37m x 34m, housing two full-size courts for basketball, badminton, boxing, five-a-side football, volleyball, netball and other court games. 


A large multi-purpose room, which measures 31m x 16m, caters to the martial arts, yoga, studio cycling, and floor-based exercises including fencing, dancing and gymnastics. The Team Training Room is home to boxing bags, prowlers and a beaverfit training rig complete with suspension training kit, and can be hired out with one of our staff members on hand to guide your team or club through a vigorous, tailored workout.

The Centre is also home to 3 Eton Fives and 3 Rugby Fives courts, as well as 5 glass-backed squash courts. Whatever your sporting passion, we have something for you at the University of Cambridge Sports Centre and we are proud to offer one of the best gyms in Cambridge.
