Fitter, Healthier, Happier

We believe in a ‘fitter, healthier, happier’ lifestyle, so with our fully equipped fitness suites at the Centre for Sport and Wallscourt Farm, our range of fitness classes, sporting activities and flexible membership options, we can help you achieve your health and fitness goals.

Fantastic sports facilities

Our newly refurbished fitness suites contain the latest Life Fitness technology and Synrgy rig equipment, and our state-of-the-art sports facilities include an Olympic standard sports hall, indoor climbing wall, astro pitch and squash courts. Most of our sports facilities are available for hire, and we can host a variety of events ranging from traditional football tournaments to corporate fun days and children's parties.

Activities and sports for all

UWE Bristol's Centre for Sport and Wallscourt Farm, based on Frenchay Campus, are the central hub of sport and fitness activity. Alongside excellent sports facilities are a wide range of social sport opportunities and fitness classes which are open to students, staff and the wider community.

Our friendly and experienced team can help keep you motivated with services such as personal training and fitness programme design. We can also meet your rehabilitation needs via the sports injury clinic and offer Phase 4 Cardiac Rehabilitation Programme.

We run sports for children, including Hotshots Holiday Camps, which are a great way to get kids involved in sporting activities over the school holiday periods. We also offer children’s birthday parties in a range of sports, climbing courses and our annual Family Fun Day.

Coach Education and Volunteering

We offer funding for staff and students to develop themselves as coaches and officials. Access funding through the EDGE Sports Volunteering Programme, while improving your CV and making yourself more employable.
