Brookes Sport events and activities affected by Covid-19


Due to the continued spread of Covid-19, and following the latest Government advice on social distancing, we have taken the decision to close all University sports facilities until further notice. All sports club and university sport activity is also postponed until further notice.

We have not taken this decision lightly but the safety and wellbeing of centre users, students and staff is of the utmost importance to us. The closures are being carried out with the welfare and best interests of all and we do hope you understand.

Direct debits will not be taken from members during this time

We have also taken the decision to suspend both the Varsity event versus the University of Reading (28th March) and the Sports Awards Dinner (24th April). We will of course be offering refunds for any Sports Awards Tickets already purchased.

Additionally, we have been informed by BUCS that all sporting fixtures have been suspended until Weds 1st April - after which a further decision will be made.

Thank you for your understanding in what are hugely frustrating times for us all.
