The University of Nottingham has announced plans to invest £40m for a new sports facility on University Park.

The new development is part of the University’s ambitious plans to significantly increase participation in sports and physical activity at all levels – from encouraging students and staff to experience a wide range of new sports to the enhancement of elite performance at a national and international level.

In keeping with the University’s green credentials, the new complex will incorporate parts of the existing sports centre, whilst adding an array of modern facilities, including:
  • a new fully adaptable 20-court sports hall
  • a 200 station fitness suite
  • sports science facilities
  • a climbing wall
  • an indoor sprint track
  • strength and conditioning facility
  • an archery and fencing hall
  • dance studios
  • a snooker hall
  • a martial arts dojo
Squash provision will also be significantly enhanced via a purpose built squash hub, featuring a full glass show court and six further glass backed courts, viewing galleries and spectator seating.

Dan Tilley, Director of Sport at the University said: “The investment is part of our ambition to create an outstanding, inspirational and accessible sports infrastructure for students, staff and the wider community. We want to encourage people of all abilities to get involved in sport and activity, and allow them to rub shoulders with and train alongside some of the country’s leading athletes”.

The new facility will be named the David Ross Sports Village and is supported by a very significant commitment from Nottingham Law alumnus and Carphone Warehouse founder David Ross.  The donation will be the biggest single gift the University has received from one of its graduates.

Played on table 4 at the Embankment, enjoyable match as always with Ross, he started very well, felt confident and potted almost everything, won the frame before the colours.

Thankfully I woke up and started with a difficult 24 in the second frame which I kept till the end to level the match.

Third frame I got advantage of the 3 miss rule and also started to fire in the long pots. Making sure of the colours at the business end of the table I got into a comfortable lead and won the frame when we only had 22 on the table.

Fourth frame I can't really remember but I think here the long pots definitely won me the frame, Ross almost came back to level things up as he potted the last 3 reds with colours, but me sinking yellow to blue in meant that Ross needed 2 snookers on the pink which he couldn't deliver so won the frame and match.

Thanks for the game pal, always good to play you, looking forward to our revenge, all the best for your next matches!

Not sure if a Desmond was a fair result here. Chris cued far better than me which is great credit to him as he doesn't play snooker as match and he's more of a pool man now.

First frame he took with ease. Think he won by at least 70 points. He didn't miss a ball.

Second and Third frames I won with a 59 in the second and a 48 in the third. 2 good frames for me. But Chris had chances to steal both as I let him back in.

Final frame I got an unlucky double kiss off a fairly good safety and Chris was in the process of compiling a huge break until he moved a red with his cue on 44. I managed to pull the game back to the final black with a nice little clearance and tried a cheeky cross triple off the side cushions into the corner and jawed it and left the black hanging.

Thanks for the match Chris. Good to see you cueing well again mate. Looking forward to the return match.

A bafflingly poor performance from me. I made so many terrible decisions, just gifting points and opportunities to Rob, who despite not being at his best, gladly took them.

I clearly need to change my approach. All this work I'm putting in on my game, and putting aside the huge lack of talent, I'm actually getting worse. I just can't trust my cue action when I'm down on the shot. I'm no psychologist but that can't be helpful.

Anyway, c'est la vie, good luck in the next round Rob.

Match Report
Match 1; Ashley Bettinson really struggling (confidence) I think any how Jim Myers played very steady and potted some lovely balls with some good safety shots took a well thought win.

Match 2; Fioz Mohammed very strong and very confident player and very strong of plus 21 he plays all the right shots, knows what he's doing and always Carries a bring grin! You've guessed it Croftys bogey player, I just can't get past his PokerFace grin is this man breakable? Im still cuing great its just I missed 90℅ of my shots by fractions grrrr!

Match 3; Arif Mohammed started very well! But Shaun Parkinson still carrying his great form gradually broke Arif down eventually walking away with the match.

Match 4; Manfred is really proofing to be a great signing although he his very weak in the break building department he his second to none in great safety and grinding people down which in my eyes is fantastic! He has managed a result out of the past three grueling matches having giving some big starts away his best was when he had to give an inform Sean Butler +28 start he walked the first frame with Manfred but Manfred dug very deep in the second and took the frame most important a draw.

Well played Lenton and my team please bare with me I promise I will become good thanks Crofty.

Match Report
The Bears took a commanding 3-1 lead with Ross winning both frames against Rich who seemed to struggle to find any form and Dan securing a very good draw against Vinnie who comfortably won the first frame but struggled in the second.

The match then drifted away from the Bears mainly due to me losing both frames against Tony. I thought I was in with a chance in the first frame with four reds left and being around 23 points up. Tony was struggling a little with the table but then decided that he wasn't going to let me play any more that frame and made an excellent total CLEARANCE OF 57. Another couple of strong breaks in the second frame meant that the match would be drawn with Pete and Brett sharing the spoils.

Well played Towers. All the best for the rest of the season.
