Cardiff Met Facility Access - Update

09/09/2020 00:00, I Mewn Blog / Track & Field /

Cardiff Metropolitan University Sport have today issued the following update with regard to community access to their facilities:

"There has been a considerable amount of operational planning to prepare our site for staff and students ready for the new academic term on the 5th October but this remains a very challenging time for us. With this in mind our campus maximum capacity has been greatly reduced, in line with Welsh Government and Public Health guidance.


The University took the decision in the early weeks of lockdown to do all that we could to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our staff, students and our community and we have continued to ensure that this has been at the forefront of our decision making throughout the pandemic. With this in mind, we have made a difficult decision to suspend the majority of community use on the Cyncoed and Llandaff Campus until January 2021 at the earliest. We can reassure you that we will be continually reviewing this position throughout the coming months and will communicate any changes as soon as possible.


Our commitment to welcoming and supporting our community to take part in activities on site is part of who we are at Cardiff Met and we trust you will understand how difficult a decision this was. However, the safety of our users is of the utmost priority and we feel this is in the best interests of all in the short term.


The restrictions on community use will therefore result in no access to NIAC, Fitness Classes, Gym, Squash Courts, Swimming Pool, Archers Arena or the Tennis centre for members and no pay and play recreational options. We will be re-starting some junior sport programmes and a separate communication will be sent out to children across all sports shortly."

  • For those with existing membership packages, you will receive a communication updating what this means for you and outlining the options available to you.
  • We will update our website and social media channels with news, updates and announcements, so please keep checking back for further information.
  • We would like to thank you for your continued support, and sincerely hope to see you back at Cardiff Met Sport very soon when it’s safe to do so.

We are continuing to have dialogue with Cardiff Met and facility owners and providers across Wales, and our CEO James Williams will be hosting a Q&A session for athletes and coaches on Tuesday 15th at 7.30pm - please book on here.
