Sport at Cambridge


Find Us

The Sports Service is based at the University of Cambridge Sports Centre in West Cambridge. Find us on the University Map or on Google Maps.

The University of Cambridge Sports Centre is a 10 minute cycle ride from the centre of Cambridge, and is best reached by cycling along Burrell's Walk (past the University Library), continuing on to Adams Road and then along the Coton Footpath. We recommend cycling as the quickest and easiest way to reach us.


Using What Three Words to find us?


By Foot

We are approximately a 30 minute walk (1.5 miles) from the centre of Cambridge. The best route to take by foot is the same as by bike.


By Bus

The Universal bus runs to the West Cambridge site, Monday to Friday (except bank holidays) from 07:00 - 20:00, and Saturday 08:00 - 19:00.


By Car

Parking is available to all users of the Sports Centre free of charge.

There are a limited number of accessible car parking spaces and an area adjacent to the Sports Centre for general car parking.

Before 8.30am

Please use Car Parks 6 and 7, located at the top of Philippa Fawcett Drive. Your membership card will allow you access.

Between 8.30am and 4.00pm

There are 30 spaces available for Sports Centre Users in the area adjacent to the Sports Centre building at the bottom of Philippa Fawcett Drive. This area has no lighting and so closes at 4pm.

After 4.00pm

Please use Car Parks 6 and 7, located at the top of Philippa Fawcett Drive. Your membership card will be needed to access at these times. Please activate your card at Reception.  If you have not activated your membership card for car park usage, you can park in car park 8 which has unrestricted access after 4pm.


We do not have parking on site for mini vans, buses or coaches. Teams may be dropped off and the vehicles then moved immediately to the Madingley Road Park and Ride.

Wilberforce Road Sports Ground and Fenners Cricket & Tennis Ground are located elsewhere.
