Sport

The extensive range of facilities at Jordanstown include 2 large sports halls, a Technogym Fitness Suite, 2 squash courts, 3 tennis courts and a gymnasium that is used extensively by all levels of gymnasts.

The Technogym Fitness Suite boasts cardiovascular, fixed and free weights equipment and also has a ‘Kinesis Wall’ that provides a complete body workout at a low impact level – the suite really has something for everyone.

The Wellness Suite comprises a sauna, steam room, plunge pool and Jacuzzi – the perfect place to relax and chill out after a workout.

The large indoor sports halls can cater for sports such as basketball, indoor soccer, cricket, badminton, netball and volleyball.

Our newest hall is the indoor third generation (3G) artificial pitch which allows for authenticity of outdoor play indoors for soccer, gaelic sports and rugby.

The hall can be divided in half and is used by numerous teams and clubs including: Northern Ireland Mens’ and Womens’ Senior and Age Group International Soccer Teams, Irish Senior International and Age Group Rugby Teams, Ulster Senior and Academy Rugby Teams, Gaelic Football teams from Down, Monaghan, Antrim and Tyrone, and University Student Sports clubs.

The hall is also very popular with our students who play 5 or 11 a side soccer games through the week.

The Acclimatisation Chamber is used regularly by the School of Sport, Sports Institute Northern Ireland as well as National Governing Bodies of Sport.

The chamber is used to fine-tune athletes for international competition in different climates, which will eliminate the need for athletes to make often inconvenient and jet-lagging trips abroad before major events.
