Fitness centre

The Fitness Centre is under the management of the Sport and Public Services Department, managed by Claire Turner.

The gym is supervised by qualified Fitness Instructors or Personal Trainers, and our classes are run by qualified instructors.

Gym

During the day our gym is used by the students of the College’s Sports, Fitness and Public Services courses and provides the main learning environment for the College’s part-time Fitness courses.

The gym is open to the public Monday – Thursday 5.15pm–8.45pm, Friday 5.15pm–8.15pm and Saturday 9.00am–12.00pm. Public sessions cost £3.00, an induction is needed before use.

Studio

The studio is also utilised by our full-time Sport and Public Services courses. It sees everything from circuit class instruction to uniformed services drills. The studio also hosts staff sessions and the highly successful Mini Olympics for schools. We also offer a range of evening classes for the public. Please contact fitnesscentre@southdowns.ac.uk for a current timetable.

Sports Hall

During the day our Sports Hall is used for practical indoor sports such as basketball, netball and five-a-side football and other activities such as uniformed services drills and employment fairs. It also hosts external bookings for archery/basketball and volleyball.

Climbing Wall

The purpose built climbing wall is used by Outdoor Adventure courses and opened up to other students through our comprehensive enrichment programme. Students on the Outdoor courses learn all the skills to go out and qualify as a climbing wall instructor – great experience for their CVs.

Football Academy

Our Academy is based in Sport & Public Services and linked with Havant and Waterlooville FC.  The South Downs Hawks are undoubtedly the best College Academy team in the country. Students are enrolled on a BTEC National in Sport and participate in first class coaching.
