Sports Park Weetwood
Located three miles north of the main University campus, Sports Park Weetwood proves excellent facilities for outdoor sport at the University of Leeds and is used by students alongside members of the local community.
Over the past 10 years £25m has been invested into new sports facilities at the University of Leeds and Sports Park Weetwood plays host to the University of Leeds Gryphons Sports Teams as well as Social Leagues.
