Regional impact

A sporting chance



The University has extensive sports facilities for all abilities and needs, from amateur enthusiasts to professional sportspeople.

Currently, we welcome about 100,000 visitors to our sports facilities every month.

We are the perfect venue for significant events such as Kent’s Sporting Legends and the international Wayne Otto Ultimate Karate Fighters Boot Camp.

Kent Sport also keenly supports the development of sporting potential with its expanding scholarship programme, providing funding and support structures for high-level athletes in this area.

At our Medway campus, the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences offers professional services to the public such as sport and exercise-testing, psychology, respiratory and nutrition consultations, rehabilitation gym and sports therapy.

In addition, we committed £3m towards the creation of Medway Park, a regional centre of sporting excellence.
