A NEW £20 million sports centre is to open at Lancaster University on August 1.

The state-of-the-art centre will be open to staff, students, schools and the local community.

Our elite performers will have state-of-the-art facilities to train and develop whilst recreational users, both from the university and the local community, will have increased opportunity and choice in order to support the wellbeing of all and to promote sports development.”
