Sport and fitness facilities

Our new Indoor Tennis and Events Arena is open for booking!

With the introduction of another national lockdown, all sport and fitness facilities (with the exception of our Physiotherapy Clinic) will be temporarily closed until further notice. 

We are delighted to be offering physiotherapy face to face and online consultations at the Kent Sport Physiotherapy Clinic.  

As before, make sure you check out our Stay Well @ Home webpage for at-home workouts and virtual classes. Once again, we are hugely upset by this news and we hope you stay safe and well during this difficult time.

Any updates on our service will be shared through @UniKentSports on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as soon as we are able to. See our Coronavirus webpage for specific information and FAQs.

Tennis returns! (currently unavailable)

We are absolutely delighted to announce that the brand-new Indoor Tennis and Events Arena is now officially open for bookings! This enhanced facility provides the University of Kent with four high-quality indoor acrylic tennis and netball* courts, easier facility access and will provide an exceptional conference and events space in the future.

See more about how to book and Coronavirus guidance on our blog.

*Netball courts will be available at a later date. Details to be announced.

Kent Sport facilities

Our facilities are open to all students, staff, alumni and the public. We operate throughout the year, including term and vacation periods, with the exception of the Christmas holiday closure.   

Astro pitch currently closed

Following a recent site survey, we have been advised that the astro pitch will need a full replacement. Therefore, we have had to close the facility until further notice, which may affect the 2021 season. We apologise for the inconvenience, and we thank you for your continued support.  

Our 3GX, 3G and grass pitches will all still be available for use.
