Sports Centre re-opening plans

We are currently planning for re-opening of some facilities in the latter part of April, subject to the progress of the Government roadmap and changes in the risk mitigation measures at the University.  Further updates will be issued as changes to these circumstances are confirmed.

The health and wellbeing of our members, and our staff, is our top priority. We will continue to review activities on offer, as University, Government, and National Governing Body guidelines allow.

We will soon update this page with more details on the Sports Centre re-opening plans, as well as email all members.

Thank you all for your continued support and understanding, from us all at Essex Sport.
