The University of Warwick’s new Sport and Wellness Hub will open in April 2019, offering event space with seating capacity for more than 1,000 people.
The brand new Sport and Wellness Hub is opening on the university’s campus and will feature spaces that can accommodate major competitions and events, both sporting and non-sporting. The facility will also incorporate bookable meeting and seminar rooms.
The Warwick Conferences team will be on hand to support with the organisation of events in the new facilities, and advise on how they can be used alongside its Warwick’s existing venues and creative spaces.
Among the new venues are two multi-purpose sports halls, with an arena-style balcony and retractable bleacher seating for up to 1,012 people, including eight wheelchair bays. The venue will also include a 25m 12-lane swimming pool with flexible configuration, moveable floor and disability access, as well as a major new indoor climbing centre.
The new Hub will be a venue for the 2019 European Corporate Games. Taking place between 1-4 August, over 100 companies and more than 7,000 athletes are expected to participate across the four-day event.
Sarah Dietrich, business development manager at Warwick Conferences, said: "The new Sports and Wellness Hub is a fantastic facility by itself but, when combined with Warwick Conferences’ venues and our extensive event management support services, it becomes an extremely exciting prospect for businesses to take advantage of."
