Indoor tennis centre

We are absolutely delighted that the brand-new Indoor Tennis and Events Arena is now ready for use. 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.

*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 and 3G pitch currently closed

Following a recent site survey, we have been advised that both the astro and 3G pitch will need a full replacement. Therefore, we have had to close the pitches until further notice, which may affect the 2021 season. We apologise for the inconvenience, and we thank you for your continued support.  

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