UWE Bristol will soon boast some of the most high-tech multi-sports pitches in the area. Hillside Gardens, due to open this December, will be the new home for our sport teams such as soccer, rugby, lacrosse, American football and ultimate frisbee.
Hillside Gardens is conveniently located adjacent to the M32 motorway and minutes from Frenchay Campus, the facilities will include:
- Two floodlit artificial pitches
- FIFA approved and World Rugby compliant artificial surfaces
- Separate artificial surface warm-up area
- Undercover seating for spectators
- Pitch side dugouts
- Grass football pitch and training grids
- Changing rooms
"With teams, players and supporters able to be together at one venue we are hoping to create a great atmosphere and improved experience for our students."
Enhancing our communities and enabling Strategy 2020
The new grounds will encourage healthy behaviours in our students, staff and local community which is a UWE Bristol key enabler for achieving Strategy 2020 priorities.
As well as providing these fantastic resources to the UWE Bristol estate, the grounds will be available for hire to local businesses and organisations for one-off events such as corporate away days, school sports events and block bookings.
