Squat racks at the performance gym

Performance Sport facilities and services

As an athlete on the Performance Sport programme you'll have access to a number of professional and support services and facilities.

Performance gym

Specially crafted for the athletes, the performance gym is located in the Wallscourt Farm facility on Frenchay Campus. The performance gym is open exclusively to athletes on our Performance Sport programme and selected Students' Union at UWE sports clubs.

The performance gym features some of the latest technology such as body composition and smartspeed timing gates, and incorporates lifting platforms, squat racks, watt bikes, a large range of free weights and benches.

Local sports facilities

Where facilities are not available on campus we have invested in additional facilities locally. This includes the new home for American Football at Hillside Gardens, access to artificial and grass pitches at Lockleaze Sports Centre, and Boat Club facilities.

Sports services professionals

As a student-athlete on the Performance Sport programme you'll be supported by a team of sports service professionals to help enhance your sporting potential. Once you’re part of the programme we’ll work with you to assess your needs and provide you with appropriate support.
