Our fitness suite is on the move

It’s game on as the first phase of our brand new sports facilities nears completion. As we transition from phase one of the development to phase two, will we need to relocate the fitness suite from the existing building to the new sports arena. We’ve tried our hardest to minimise the impact on members but there will inevitably be some disruption during the move. We understand that this is an inconvenience but we appreciate your patience whilst we bring you the first phase of our £16 million redevelopment.

PREPARATION IS EVERYTHING
Tuesday 4 September

The fitness suite will remain open in the existing building, although there will be limited equipment available as we prepare to move. Some cardio machines will be accessible, along with weights ranging from 2kg to 20kg. Our expert team will also be on hand in a temporary personal training zone.

THE BIG MOVE
Wednesday 5 to Monday 10 September

From 10.30am on Wednesday 5 September, the fitness suite will be unavailable as it is relocated to the new sports arena. We will be open again at 7am on Monday 10 September.

SOFT LAUNCH 
Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September

Fancy a preview? A soft opening will provide an opportunity for members to enjoy a 15 minute tour of the new facilities, followed by 45 minutes in the fitness suite. To book a slot email tim.purdy@hull.ac.uk there are limited spaces available and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

As part of the soft opening, a members’ rig class will run at 10am on both Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September. Again, limited spaces are available so book early to avoid disappointment tim.purdy@hull.ac.uk

GROUP EXERCISE CLASSES

Our fantastic range of group exercise classes will run as normal, taking place in the existing building and transferring to the new sports arena on Monday 10 September.

REOPENING

The fitness suite will reopen at 7am on 10 September, with the new sports arena fully opening on Monday 17 September. Fitness suite members will be able to access free guest passes from reception as a small thank you for bearing with us during the move.

Here is everything you need to know –

    Courts 1, 3 and 5 will be out of use. There will also be reduced spectator space due to the building works taking place.

  3. Refurbishment of reception – 6 August to 7 September
    There will be no access through the main reception area. Please follow the signposts to the new temporary reception.
  4. Fitness suite move – 6 September to 8 September

  5. Sports Centre closes for refurbishment – 16 September
    There will be no access to the existing building. You will be able to access the squash courts via the path to the rear of the Sports Centre.

hull half marathon

This Sunday, runners taking part in the inaugural Asda Foundation Hull Half Marathon will be making their way through campus as the University is an ‘official venue partner’ for the run.

This is a really exciting event and colleagues are encouraged to get involved by supporting the 1600 runners visiting our beautiful campus, including over 40 of our colleagues who will proudly be representing the University in vibrant t-shirts.

In addition to the race, there will be live music, food, family games including giant inflatable Jenga and a football table on the plaza outside of the Brynmor Jones Library, making it a fun day out for friends and family too. Spectators should come to campus at least 15 minutes before they expect their friend/family member to reach mile eight, in order to ensure they get a good view – we expect the first runners to come through at 9.45am.

Colleagues and students from the Faculty of Health Sciences will also be representing the University and providing massages to runners at the finish line in a branded tent, providing another fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of the University.

Spectators can enter the campus via the north west entrance on Inglemire Lane circled on the map here. All visitors will need to park on the temporary car park located on the cricket pitch.
