Sports Centre (CAD)



The university's Sports Centre (CAD) offers a comprehensive range of sports and activities, striving to promote the physical and mental well-being of both our University community and the public. We strongly encourage everyone - whether you are a researcher, student, staff member, or member of the public, to get involved in our activities at the CAD. Participating is a great way to relieve stress, meet new people, and take up new and exciting hobbies, all in a safe, welcoming, and stimulating environment.

The range at our sports centre is extensive, ensuring that you can participate in sports and activities that you’re already passionate about, or take up something new and exciting. We offer sports and activities in six main categories: racket sports, body and mind, fitness, dance, mountain sports and water sports (as well as activities such as archery and skating).


The Sports Centre also organizes and participates in an extensive range of competitions and tournaments throughout the year.
