Join in the Sports Centre's 5th anniversary celebrations!

We have made sure your family have something fun and active to do on the children’s first weekend of the summer holidays, with a Family Fun day on Sunday 31st July from 12.00pm – 4.00pm in celebration of our 5th anniversary. 

All ages and abilities can get stuck into a variety of free Have-A-Go sessions such as tennis, football, cricket and climbing. If that doesn’t take your fancy, there is also bubble football, aqua splash, Indoor athletics and much more. 

The day will also include delicious food, face painting, a bouncy castle, games and friendly competitions which will help raise funds for the North West Air Ambulance charity.

Kim Montgomery, Head of Sport at Lancaster University said:

“In 2011 Lancaster University opened a brand new £20m Sports Centre featuring the latest range in sporting facilities. Our team wanted to use this milestone as an opportunity to celebrate the success of the last five years and give families the opportunity to enjoy a day of being active together. We have lots to offer and to show off the great facilities on Lancaster’s doorstep, whilst raising money for a great cause.” 

We look forward to seeing you there on the day.
