Block Bookings

Our block booking offering will ensure that your training, events or fixtures are able to run easily and cost effectively

Block bookings

Our facilities here at the Sport and Recreation department are not limited to use by just students and staff at the university. We work with many clubs and facilities in the local community, from schools and leagues, to individual clubs.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect place for your team to train weekly, or if you are looking to start up a club, our facilities are ideal. Our competitive pricing will ensure your games or events run at a cost-effective price.

The benefit of block booking

The main benefit that comes with block booking is that it guarantees your slot, for you and your group/team, providing you with peace of mind. Whereas there is no way to guarantee that you will be able to book slots of your choice via the UOP Sport App, this works on a first come first served basis, meaning that your preferred slot may not be available at short notice.
