PARKING THIS WEEK AT SPORTSPARK During this period Sportspark users will have 250 spaces reserved in the main UEA Car Park instead of the Sportspark Car Park. The spaces will be closest to Sportspark and free of charge. Tokens issued at the barrier should be retained and used when exiting. No validation is required. There will be a reduced number of our normal disabled bays made available within the Sportspark Car Park, however the majority of disabled bays will be within the UEA Car Park. The Sportspark Car Park will be available as normal from Saturday 20th July. Thank you
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.
Gymnastics Centre 15/07
Please be reminded that gymnastics is closed this week due to graduation but courses will continue for a week to make up for this. Thanks
Information for CoNAC Members
We have been working with CoNAC following concerns raised by their members that the Sportspark athletics track will be used as part of UEA’s Graduation Ceremony this month.
Sportspark would again like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to families and athletes and we have been working hard with the club to see what changes can be made to provide more access for CoNAC members during this time.
Talking to the club it is clear that the communication we sent to CoNAC on 14 January 2019 confirming that the athletics track would be closed from Monday 15 July to Sunday 21 July was unfortunately not communicated through to all CoNAC members. We sent a further communication to CoNAC on the 3 June confirming the need for extended closure of the athletics track from Wednesday 10 July due to the need for additional time to prepare the venue but have not been able to confirm alternative access opportunities until this week.
We have offered CoNAC the opportunity to have managed club sessions on partially opened athletic track facilities from Wednesday 10 July through to Saturday 13 July, and Saturday 20 and Sunday 21; and they will be communicating this onto their members directly.
