Recently the University has purchased new sports facilities on campus including a new gym, sports hall and swimming pool. I have always enjoyed swimming and so was sad to know that the University didn’t have their own pool. It wasn’t to much of a problem, there has been always been a public pool that was close enough to get to. However, they were always just a little to far away for me to bother to go as much as I would have liked. So when I first heard about this new purchase I was tremendously excited.
So far I have been utilising the facilities quite a lot, almost everyday in fact! Having it right on campus makes it so convenient. The great thing is that not only have I been going swimming a lot, I have been using the gym too. There are loads of different machines to choose from and so far I haven’t not been able to get straight on the one I wanted, although it is still technically the holidays. . . The only sad thing is that the pool is not deep enough to dive in however, there is a sauna, steam room and jacuzzi so I think that makes up for it!
It is quite amusing really, the Uni has gone so long without a pool and then we get two in one year as they are also building new sports stuff up at the student village about 40 minutes away from the Uni right next to where most of the 1st years live!
