The University of Hull is investing £16m to increase the size and quality of their fitness facilities that will offer an extensive sporting provision for visiting teams and the community.
The sports pitches (Phase 1) are now complete and the main new build element off the sports hall has commenced on site. Phase 1 included a new football hub, incorporating a brand new eight changing room pavilion complete with classrooms and physiotherapy room. This phase received a £500,000 donation from the Premier League & the FA Facilities Fund and also included the refurbishment of artificial sports pitches.
The existing sports hall, which has recently become a Grade II Listed building, will become a 120-station fitness gymnasium with supplementary facilities including a dance/aerobic studio, changing rooms and a conditioning suite.
The sports centre will house a 12-court sports facility comprising international standard netball courts and bleacher style seating for 700 spectators, creating a regional hub for netball.
