Students can look forward to a return to sport for term three through our Parklife x Panthers open sessions. A great way to connect with student clubs so you are ready to hit the ground running next academic year. We have made all activities free for this term so why not give it a go?

More details about the sessions are below. Sessions do have limited capacities to comply with COVID guidelines. We don't anticipate these being reached however it will be down to arrival time as to who gets admitted. Some sessions have pre booking arrangements as per below. Please take your student ID with you to sessions. Ensure you follow COVID guidelines, these will be outlined before your session. When not in active play be sure to keep your distance from others. Use the hand sanitising stations and be mindful of others when entering and exiting playing areas.

It’s great to hear the roadmap announcement yesterday and we are looking forward to welcoming back our community as we are all keen to get active in our facilities again. We are now busy making preparations for our reopen. Please be mindful we are awaiting full guidelines from the various sport and industry bodies to ensure any reopen falls within the guidelines and we can keep you as safe as we can.


Further to this we will also need to fulfil the requirements set by the university in our role as a service provider for our academic commitments and in being part of the wider university campus.


We appreciate your patience while we put everything in place. Once we have anticipated dates for reopen we will let you know.


Facility hire:

Once we have a reopen date we will reconfirm bookings already in place and will book in any new requests. 



We will email and our COVID page our intended reopen date and the likely services available. We will also update you on arrangements for extending memberships and charges. As always we will not charge you for the period we were closed due to the national lockdown.


Student Clubs and Parklife:

Given the extended period our students have not been on campus or able to take part in student club activity we have made the decision to refund all student club (Panther) memberships (Bronze, Silver, Gold and BSMS). Parklife league entries (£15) will also be refunded. If you are yet to get a refund then please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We are hopeful to run activities should guidance permit this academic year but will advise nearer the time of a pricing structure for this once we have a better idea of the levels of service we can offer.  


These dates will obviously be subject to change as the current timetable is still reliant on government approval dependent on COVID rates nearer the time. We look forward to welcoming you again to our centre.
