Newcastle University Sport Centre is ideally located on campus in the city, close to most first year accommodation. Sports Hall 1 in the South Wing offers eight badminton courts and a viewing gallery allowing spectators to get a great view of the action. Sports Hall 2 in the North Wing has six badminton courts is painted blue to avoid clashes with shuttlecocks and table tennis balls.
Both halls accommodate the badminton and table tennis club's training and fixtures. Club members can also book individual courts and tables two weeks in advance, free of charge.
Our Squash Club has priority access over the sport centre's four glass-backed squash courts. The courts are arranged alongside each other in their own sector of the sport centre meaning they're ideal for training, matches and hosting small competitions.
With their sport centre memberships, students can book squash courts two weeks in advance, free of charge. If you want to play train and play every day, you can!
The Newcastle University Sport Centre offers a world class, 180 station gym for all of its members but also two state of the art strength and conditioning suites for scholars and performance teams. This means our athletes don't have to fight for equipment and space with the general student population and have our passionate coaches on hand to monitor their progress.
