They've tried it, have you?

2013 saw the opening of NTU's City Sports Centre that included a 30ft climbing wall. Suitable for beginners through to the experienced, it is now one of the top attractions of the City Sports Centre.

The 30ft climbing wall, spanning three whole floors is based in the Students' Union building and has created real buzz.

Ideal for beginners and experts alike

Since the City Sports Centre opened earlier this academic year, the wall has had over 2200 visits by students and staff. Taster sessions were put on for both groups which had great attendance, and everyone from beginners through to the experienced had the chance to learn some new skills and have fun.

Why not give it a go?

Many have put their climbing skills to the test now, but have you? If not, don't worry! The 30ft wall isn't going anywhere fast, so come along and uncover your hidden talents.

And, for those of you who have already tried it out, we have reset the climbing wall routes - meaning more challenges and more fun while getting active!
