Armitage Sports Centre

Welcome to The Armitage Sports Centre, home of UoM Sport. Located in the heart of the Fallowfield campus, we are right at your doorstep. Offering a wide range of facilities; from our indoor halls to our outdoor pitches and a fully equipped fitness suite, we provide an outstanding service, that brings University Sport to life.


The Armitage Sports Centre is home to many of the Athletic Union sport clubs and community teams, being the perfect place to train on our wide range of high quality spaces, including our new full size floodlit 3G pitches.

Alongside this, we have a split level fitness suite which holds an extensive list of excellent equipment that you can use with purchase of a membership.

You can also participate in a range of individual stimulating activities such as football, badminton, squash, netball, table tennis, basketball and much more.

Customer Information

August 2019 Customer access to the Centre is currently via the temporary traffic light system from the rear of the Centre until 25th August, as Gunnery Lane is unavailable due to construction works.

There will be limited car parking spaces on site during this time, so please plan before you visit, car share where possible and arrive with plenty of time. We apologise for any inconvenience during this time.

As part of the Centres ongoing developments, you may notice some disruption to certain areas, which are being improved during the summer months.

We are currently refurbishing our Studio to enhance your fitness class experience, and introducing a Spin Class area, featuring a larger expanded room, fully air conditioned with improved lighting, flooring and audio visual experience.

We hope you will be as excited as us for the changes, and apologise for any inconvenience during this period.
