Due to essential maintenance we have a full pool closure from Tuesday 23rd July - Thursday 25th July. The pool will close as normal on Monday evening and re-open on Friday morning as normal. This closure is to replace the lining of the pool due to damage. We apologise for this closure and appreciate your patience with this necessary work.
UEA Graduation ceremonies will be held at the Sportspark Monday 15 - Friday 19 July. This has been communicated to customers in the lead up to the event.
The swimming pool, climbing wall, gym, squash courts, astroturf pitches, 3G pitches, tennis courts, café, exercise studios, all remain open.
To allow the large numbers of people onsite to better move around the venue, the Sportspark have decided to close an additional hall and restrict use on a further hall. Where possible, customers with bookings for these halls today have already been contacted, and the team are working through the bookings for the rest of the week.
Blue badge holders can continue to use the Sportspark car park and all other customers can use the main car park.
Now UEA Graduation 2019 is complete, I would like to say thank you to all our customers who were inconvenienced, especially with extra sessions cancelled. Those customers that joined us for their normal activities saw, and commented on, what a fantastic event UEA Graduation 2019 was.
Our team worked really hard after we were asked to hold the event as the only location on campus big enough to hold every aspect that graduation requires. In numbers we had 5,000 graduates, 18 honorary graduates, 19 ceremonies & 5 glorious days.
I hope you will be able to join me in congratulating all students who were involved last week and wishing them the best for the future.
– Phil Steele, Director of Sport & Commercial Services
