Coronavirus / COVID-19

The sports facilities will be closed until further notice.

The developing situation in relation to COVID-19 means we continue to find ourselves in unprecedented times.

The wellbeing of our staff and student members is of the utmost importance to us. On the advice of Executive Board, we have taken the decision to close all sports and fitness facilities owned and operated by Newcastle University.

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep members as up to date as possible with future operations of the sports facilities.
