Love sport or fancy getting more active? Whether you’re a serious fitness fanatic or a total beginner, the Sportspark at the UEA in Norwich has something for you (probably more than you imagined, in fact).
Facilities at the Sportspark, located just a 10 minute drive from Norwich City Centre are some of the best in the region, and are, wonderfully accessible to all, rather than simply members (although you can become a Sportscard holder, which entitles you to extra benefits and discounts).
For budding athletes, there’s the all weather floodlit international standard 8 lane athletics track – the best in Norfolk, as well as jumping and throwing facilities.
Sportspark has six floodlit tarmacadam outdoor tennis courts, which also convert to four netball courts. You can even hire tennis racquets and buy tennis balls. Couldn’t be simpler to practice your backhand.
Football fans won’t be disappointed with the Soccerpark. There are more small sided soccer pitches at Sportspark than anywhere else in East Anglia, and you have a choice of pitch size and surface. Sportspark boasts 7 x 3G football pitches – 4 x 5-a-side and 3 x 7-a-side. All 5 a-side 3G football pitches are enclosed with top-netting.
There are also, 2 x floodlit synthetic turf hockey pitches (sand-dressed). These can be used as 6 x 7-a-side football pitches!
There are Leagues run by Norfolk County FA for adults (18+) and specifically students (over 18 in full time education).
Please check the Sportspark website for General opening hours for each area.
