The Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre (STFSC) is an indoor facility on the main University campus. It offers an extensive programme consisting of Student Union (SU) Sports Clubs, instructor led classes and individual training.
There are over 25 Sports Clubs run by the Students’ Union. The Sports Clubs participate in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) competitions and have home and away fixtures.
The University outdoor sport facilities can be found at UCLan Sports Arena (USA) which is located just 2 miles away. Local facilities are hired to provide sports that are not available on the main campus e.g Canoeing, Climbing, Golf, Horse Riding, Squash, Tennis, Trampolining and Windsurfing.
Residents of Preston benefit from being located in some of the country’s most beautiful countryside. With coastline and towns, the rugged Pennine moors and forest of Bowland, Lancashire is the perfect location for hikers and walkers. The city itself is also home to over 500 hectares of parkland, split over 7 municipal parks, five of which have won awards for excellence.
