Recreation and elite sport

There is a well-recognised need to accommodate students who wish to participate in sport for purely recreational reasons, as well as providing for those who have aspirations and the ability to participate at the highest levels and the introduction of the University Arena enables both elite and recreational sporting activities to take place.

To have a facility as good as the arena accessible for people with disabilities is just fantastic, hopefully it will persuade disabled people who love sport to join the university and study here.

Michelle Morgan, Director of Netball commented:
“Having a facility such as the University Arena available to students to play and train in is fantastic, it offers the ability to engage more players and as a result develop both the individual and the sports programme as the whole. Making the Arena the home of Netball here shows that we are committed to providing a top-level programme for our students which will include on and off-court support along with opportunities in the community; team that with the Super-League and International events being hosted here – we really are able to put UW Netball on the map!

Netball at the University of Worcester is the number one female participation sport. Huge developments have been made on and off the court over the 2013/14 season including the introduction of Strength and Conditioning training, Sport Psychology sessions for the Performance Team along with Performance Analysis and Sports Therapy support.
