Coronavirus Pandemic

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic all University of Worcester Seniors Programme sport and group exercise sessions are suspended and the gym and fitness suites at the McClelland Centre at the City Campus and the Sports Hall on the St. Johns Campus are closed until further notice. Membership payments have also been suspended until activities resume. Further information will be posted here as it becomes available.

The 2020 Seniors Games, due to take place from 19 to 21 May, have also been cancelled as a result of the pandemic. Entry fees already paid will be refunded once university staff are able to return to work in their offices.
