Facilities and hire

At Edge Hill Sport, we offer some of the best sporting facilities in the region that are fully accessible to disabled people and contain excellent provision for both indoor and outdoor sports.

Our facilities span over two sites across the Ormskirk campus, the main Sports Centre building and the Wilson building, and are available to hire to students, staff and the local community. Selected court hire is included within our membership packages or can also be booked and paid for on a casual basis. Alternatively we also offer block booking packages through our contract hire process.

Sports facilities

In order to hire facilities you will need to have your details registered on our online system by either signing up for a paid membership or a casual (pay as you go) membership. Some activities and facilities may require you to take out a contract booking which can be organised by our administration team. More information regarding our facilities and how to book can be found from our Standard Activities table further down this page.

Please note that parking restrictions are in operation to non-permit holders.  Please see further information on Customer Parking for details.
