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.
