At Highfield Campus, the Jubilee Sports Centre opened in 2004. This has added a 140 station fitness suite, a 25m 6-lane swimming pool and a 8-court sports hall to the existing facilities in the Union Building.
In October 2005, a newly refurbished Wide Lane Sports Ground was opened by John Inverdale, alumnus and sports commentator. The new grounds consist of 76 acres of facilities, including grass pitches for baseball, cricket, football, lacrosse and rugby. There are also 8 floodlit tennis courts, 2 floodlit synthetic pitches, a rifle range and a boat lane.
