Free sport in Southend

The fantastic facilities at Southend Leisure and Tennis Centre at Garon’s Park are free for students and staff to use. Courts are booked every Wednesday and Saturday and free transport is available from University Square accommodation.

The centre is home to a superb indoor pool used as a training base for the British diving team before the London 2012 Olympic Games.


Just 20 minutes walk from the Campus is the Loughton Leisure Centre just off the town’s main shopping area. This public centre has a main and teaching pool, fitness suite and exercise classes.
