Facilities

The Canterbury campus is home to an impressive range of exceptional sporting facilities, such as:

The Canterbury campus includes three large ovals, incorporating six playing fields. The two turf pitch cricket wickets are used regularly for training and game play.

Oval 1 contains an impressive 400m international standard athletics track that came to Canterbury as part of the tender process of the Legacy Asset Program after the GC2018 Commonwealth Games. The athletics track incorporates 6 running lanes and spaces for long jump, triple jump, pole vaulting and shot put.

There are three multi-purpose courts inside the Canterbury Events Centre (CEC) to accommodate netball, basketball and volleyball. Each court has electronic scoreboards as well as floodlighting for evening matches.

The Sports Hall is used for both sporting fixtures and HPE classes. Netball, Basketball, Volleyball and Badminton are played in the Sports Hall. It has two indoor courts, impact flooring and electronic scoreboard. Sports Administration is located in the Sports Hall.

Located as an annexe to the Sports Hall, the wood sprung floor squash courts came to Canterbury as part of the tender process of the Legacy Asset Program after the GC2018 Commonwealth Games. The courts feature movable walls to create either single or double courts, or one big open space.

There are two full-sized outdoor tennis/netball/basketball courts located beside the Sports Hall.

Our Aquatic and Tennis Centre will open in November 2020. The exciting facility will feature a 10-lane 50m pool, a learn-to-swim pool and eight competition-standard tennis courts.
