Sports Studies

The first sport studies course was offered at Moulton in 1999. Since then the College has responded to the enormous growth in demand for sports courses by investing heavily in new facilities. The John Ashby Sports Hall was opened in 2000 and accommodates a full size basketball court, four badminton courts and a volleyball court. The building also houses a dance studio, sports science lab and a recently refurbished fitness suite allowing a greater variety of practical subjects to be studied. Additional grass football pitches and training areas together with floodlit ‘rubber-crumb’ and sand filled all weather surfaces followed, and more recently a full-sized water based astroturf suitable for hockey, together with tennis and netball courts were added. A second indoor sports hall, which includes a climbing wall and an Olympic free weights training area was opened in 2007. The latest addition to the College’s exceptional sporting facilities is the Sports Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation Centre that will include a 25 metre swimming pool. In addition to traditional sports courses, the College offers outdoor adventure programmes which offer students access to the College’s sail and motor powered boats that are used on Pitsford Reservoir. Cross-country, orienteering and mountain-bike courses are located around the College estate.
