Sports Park Weetwood

Located three miles north of the main University campus, Sports Park Weetwood provides 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. Every week hundreds of students train, receive coaching and play matches on these excellent facilities.

The facility also hosts the Leeds/Bradford MCCU cricket team, as well as being the venue for Yorkshire Cricket Club Academy, Junior and 2nd XI sides. It is also proud to be recognised as a Junior Regional Performance Centre for hockey.
