Get involved in sport and exercise at Newcastle. Get moving, feel great, reach your goals, be your best.

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon...

In line with government restrictions for the second national lockdown, all our sports and fitness activity will be paused from Thursday, 5 November 2020.

The Sport and Fitness Centre will be closed with the gym, group exercise classes and household sport all paused. All outdoor sports facilities will be closed with AU Club activity, Intramural sport and household sport all paused.

We will follow government guidance and confirm a re-opening date for our sports facilities closer to the time. This will be once national lockdown 2 is lifted and it is safe to re-open.
