As you may be aware, Manchester Metropolitan University and the City of Manchester University are undertaking a £2.6 million refurbishment of the Sugden Sports Centre. Phase 1, the upstairs gym and activity rooms, were completed summer 2017, and phases 2 to 4 take place between February and September 2018.

The phase 2-4 schedule of works are outlined below:

Phase Areas Dates
Phase 2 Changing rooms A&B Opening 13th April 2018
Phase 3 Lower Gym (Cardio) 26th March – 27th April 2018
Phase 4 Changing rooms C&D, new toilets 11th June – 31st August 2018
Phase 5

11th June – 31st August 2018

Update Phase 2

Phase 2 is underway, and the new changing rooms and locker system are to open the 13th April 2018.

Phase 3

Gym area

Phase 3 is due to commence 26th March 2018. This will involve the cardio area of the gym, and the equipment from this area will be temporarily moved in to sports hall B.

The weights section of the gym will remain open to customers, with work not commencing in this area until June 2018.

Access to the upper gym and activity rooms between 26th March – 13th April will be via the lift in the gym. After the 13th April this will be through the corridor and staircase outside halls A&B.

Squash courts and outdoor football

Between the 9th and 13th April the squash courts will be out of action due to a new floor being laid in the corridor. During this time the outdoor football pitch will also be out of use for repair work too the fencing.

In order to upgrade the centre to a modern and attractive facility, such disruption is inevitable and we hope you can bear with us. If you find you are heavily inconvenienced or have any questions please email us.
