Social Spaces

Brookes Sport is a brilliant social hub and we welcome students, staff and community members to use our social spaces to relax and enjoy time with friends.

At both our Brookes Sport centres, we offer a range of facilities to unwind, meet with friends or grab some refreshment before getting on with your day.

Free WiFi is available throughout both of our sport centres.

Lounge Area & Pavilion

Relax and recharge in our lounge area, equipped with vending machines, comfortable seating and ample work space. It is a great place to relax before or after using Brookes' Sport facilities, or study prior to an afternoon of BUCS Wednesday fixtures or a training session.

Our pavilion is also brilliant place to meet and catch up with friends with a view over our grass pitches and the beautiful surrounding area.
