LEISURE FACILITIES

imago Sport taps into the unrivalled world class sports facilities that Loughborough University is renowned for and offers a wide variety of sporting activities for delegates. This premier sporting venue offers the perfect backdrop to corporate sporting events as well as outdoor team building and national and international sports competitions. Delegates can decide their sporting pastime from a wide array of activities – swimming, rugby, netball, football, tennis, hockey – or running round the 6-lane outdoor track that Paula Radcliffe has trained on! Recent investment in sport at Loughborough University has meant an emergence of unsurpassed facilities: a new state-of-the-art 50m Olympic swimming pool, water based hockey pitch, badminton/netball centre, a world-leading indoor athletics centre, a gymnastics centre and the new National Cricket Academy (NCA) opened by the Queen in late November 2003.
