Our alumni are entitled to a special sports membership scheme, operated by Sport and Wellbeing. This gives you discounted access to the University's huge range of sporting facilities, as well as coaching courses.
Our sports facilities include the Jubilee Sports Centre on Highfield Campus. It has a 150 station fitness suite, a 25m six-lane swimming pool and an eight-court sports hall as well as squash courts, a martial arts studio and bouldering wall.
The refurbished Wide Lane Sports Ground – opened by John Inverdale, alumnus and sports commentator – has grass pitches for baseball, cricket, football, lacrosse and rugby. There are also eight floodlit tennis courts, two floodlit synthetic pitches and a rifle range.
We can also offer a range of watersports, from kayaking to powerboating.
To apply for alumni sports membership:
- if you don't already have one, you first need to apply for a free alumni ID card
- once you have received your ID card, contact Sport and Wellbeing to arrange your membership
