Guests enjoy the new surroundings

A new café has opened in the Sports & Fitness Centre on Bedford Street.

The brand new facilities are part of the multi-million pound transformation of the University’s sport and leisure facilities, which includes a fully refurbished swimming pool and new changing village, fitness suite, weight training area, dance studio and a state-of-the-art bouldering wall.

Pete Sampara, Sports Operations Manager, said: “It has been a difficult couple of years trying to maintain usage of the facilities and services for customers while project managing the major redevelopments of Wyncote Sports Grounds and the Sports & Fitness Centre, but what has been achieved has undoubtedly placed the University of Liverpool sports provision at the forefront of some of our main competitors.

”The new café provides a welcome addition and is a fantastic place for visitors to meet, relax and socialise before and after exercising.”

The café offers a wide selection of fresh food including sandwiches, healthy snacks, fruit smoothies and juices, providing all the healthy options you would expect in a sports centre café which, until now, had only been available through vending machines.
