University of Cambridge
United Kingdom

With dozens of University Sports clubs and thousands of students taking part in College and recreational sport, Cambridge has a vibrant and diverse sporting community. Sport is an integral part of College and University life, and the success of our teams is testament to the hard work and commitment of students and their coaches.

However, the facilities and support for student sport in Cambridge are woefully inadequate. If the University wants to think of itself as a world-class institution and continue to attract the best students, it must tackle the issue and build a new sports centre.

After 36 years of inaction, CUSU, supported by the Hawks Club and the Ospreys, are leading a campaign to force the University to recognise the needs of its students and bring our facilities up to the standard seen at other top Universities. Please sign the petition and get involved!

We, the undersigned, support the campaign for a University Sports Centre in Cambridge and call on the University of Cambridge to commit towards raising the funds for and building this sports centre.

In particular, we call on the University to:

1. Publically reaffirm their commitment to the building of a University sports centre on the West Cambridge Site.

2. Promote and enable fundraising towards a University Sports Centre and University Sport more generally, as part of the 800th Anniversary Campaign.

3. Actively fundraise and solicit donations for the University sports centre, including searching for large donors.

4. Support the Hawks, Ospreys and University sports clubs in their attempts to secure donations from alumni, friends and other groups for this cause.

5. Ensure that the sports centre is built with the services and facilities to meet the needs to University sports clubs and members of the University for training, matches, sports rehab and recreation.
