Sport and Recreation

Whether you are a seasoned competitor, a person who likes to take a jog every now and then, new to sport and exercise or simply just want to give something new a go, then Warrington Sport can accommodate you.


The University of Chester is committed to providing students with sporting opportunities which are at the heart of many student experiences.

Great facilities, passionate professionals and a first class support network to help you engage in sport at any level will help you to both settle into life at Warrignton and enhance your student experience.

The University of Chester recognises the importance of sport, fitness and health to its institutional mission and core values. Sport and fitness plays an integral part of this in ensuring that there is a pursuit of excellence, a distinctive student experience, inclusiveness and a supportive culture.

The University continues to develop and enhance its facilities, provision and support of sport to ensure that all students and staff are able to participate at appropriate levels to fulfil their sport and fitness needs  and desires.  

The University of Chester is also home to some of Chester and Warrington’s elite sports clubs namely: Warrington Wolves, Chester Football Club, Chester Rugby Club, City of Chester Swimming Club and Chester and Lymm Hockey Clubs.

The Sport and Recreation department provides facilities, activities and sporting opportunities for all staff, students and guests of the University on the Warrington campus.

By working closely with the  Students' Union, the department of Sport and Community Engagement, the Grounds and Gardens department and many other individuals, departments, groups and agencies, we hope to continue to enhance the sporting profile of the University.

The ethos of the Warrington Campus is mirrored in our approach to the fitness suite, and we want it to be as friendly, inclusive and approachable as possible. Staff are on hand to offer any help and support, and as we have multiple rooms on offer, the suite doesn’t become overcrowded. Our monthly and annual prices include admission to all fitness classes, and bookable personal training sessions as standard, in addition to unlimited use of any of the fitness facilities on offer.
