9:15am Saturday 1st September 2012 in News
THE first customers have visited the new £9 million York Sport Village swimming pool at the University of York , which opened its doors to the public yesterday.
One of the first into the pool was Anne Crowley, from Stamford Bridge, who was introduced to the facilities by Coun Sonja Crisp and Jon Greenwood, the university’s director of commercial services.
Coun Crisp said: “We know that an active lifestyle brings a wide range of long-term benefits and I hope that people of all ages will enjoy this facility which will help support both our city’s sporting ambitions and health agenda for years to come.”
The competition-standard eight lane 25-metre pool is situated close to the Grimston Bar park & ride, on the edge of the university’s Heslington East campus expansion.
