York St. John University are developing an exciting new plan for sport for all at York St John University to build on the quality of our student experience and the way in which we engage with the community through our wide range of facilities, expertise and passion for sport, health and well-being. The acquisition of 57 acres of outdoor sports facilities within a ten minute walk of campus is a huge step forward and we want to ensure we make the best use of all the space has to offer to shape our plan for sport and it's successful delivery.
There is an impressive range of facilities for you to use, including:
- York St John student sport park - a 57 acre sports site which includes a sand based floodlit synthetic turf pitch for football and hockey and a 3G floodlit synthetic turf pitch for football and rugby. There are also cricket pitches, netball and tennis courts and a sprint track.
- The next phase of our £7m investment in sport and wellbeing facilities will be the creation of a sports centre at our Student Sport Park. Scheduled to open in September 2016, the centre will house sports courts, gym facilities, changing rooms and multi-use teaching and conference space.
- Sports hall on campus with climbing wall, four badminton courts and provision for netball, volleyball, basketball, cricket, badminton and five-a-side football.
- Fully-equipped Fitness and Conditioning Suite on campus, offering cardiovascular, fixed and free weights. This suite has been accredited under the Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) for its commitment to offering opportunities that enable disabled people to become physically active.
