USW Sport Park

USW Sport Park is a £3.7m state-of-the-art coaching and performance development Centre just minutes from the University’s Treforest Campus and just 20 minutes from Cardiff. Studying and playing in the USW Sport Park gives you access to a national-standard six badminton court, eleven pitches including five floodlit pitches, an artificial training pitch and a 3G floodlit football pitch as well as a notational analysis suite.

The Sport Park is regularly used for training by public and professional sport teams including the British Lions and international rugby teams as well as Cardiff City FC.

Amazing new facilities

Students starting at the USW Sport Park in 2017 will be the first to train in our brand-new facilities.

Thanks to continued investment, we will have a specialist centre for strength and conditioning with 12 lifting platforms and providing a high performance environment for aspiring athletes. We will have a facility specially designed for sporting performance that focuses on rugby and football coaching.

Our brand-new, full size 3G indoor football pitch will be the only one in Wales and one of five in the whole of the UK. It will allow training all year round and opportunities for our rugby, football and coaching students.
