British Universities & Colleges Sport

Once again I would like to thank University of Nottingham Sport for their support for the BUCS Table Tennis individual championships this weekend. The team understood instantly what we were trying to achieve, sourced additional requests promptly and the venue was incredibly impressive. We are already looking forward to returning to Nottingham next year!

Renan Lavigne, Team Manager - French National Squash Team

The David Ross Sports Village offers great squash facilities - among the best in the world. With the six glass backed courts, the show court and viewing areas for all courts it's the perfect set up for training and tournaments. My players also had the opportunity to use the hydrotherapy pool and Sports Injury Clinic and were full of praise for these services. I am already looking forward to coming back with the French National team in the near future.

 West Bridgford Colts

West Bridgford Colts book the grass football pitches at Riverside throughout the season. Teams will regularly comment on the quality of the pitches and behind the scenes the office are very accommodating of our fixture requirements and respond promptly to queries. The University and wider community are fortunate to have a wealth of good quality and well managed facilities that we can all benefit from.
