Welcome to Sport Swansea
Swansea is an incredible sporting city and Swansea University is right at the heart of the action. As a university we are thrilled be partnered up with elite sporting organisations, providing students and the community with a premier sports offering.
We understand that no athlete reaches elite levels alone as such Sport Swansea works with other sporting organisations and facilities to provide the best possible chance of success to our athletes. The University has strong and established links with a large variety of local, national and International sporting organisations, these include professional sports clubs and governing bodies.
At present the University is working with over 30 organisations, partnering on a number of areas within sport. The University works closely with professional sports teams Swansea City FC, Ospreys and Scarlets rugby. Areas of collaboration include shared training facilities (Fairwood), sports science research projects, data science, work placements, corporate sponsorship, and student fan zone initiatives.
Swim Wales is based at the National pool in the University’s Sports Village. Swim Wales’ national high performance centre based at Swansea is one of only two centres in Wales which provides elite swimmers with a world class training environment. The program attracts high quality applicants to the centre and the University.
The University works closely with Disability Sport Wales and this was evident during the IPC championships in 2014 held at the University’s sports village. The strong relationship has continued with young volunteers from the organisation being invited to participate in subsequent events and initiatives at the University.
