University of East Anglia SportsPark - "SPRING"


Continental Sports is delighted to announce the recent completion of a new gymnastics training facility at the University of East Anglia's SportsPark.  The new facility is known as "SPRING"

The facility is housed in a brand new purpose designed building on the university's extensive sports campus.  The building was designed by R H Partnership architects who worked closely with Continental from the early design stages to ensure the building would accomodate all the gymnastics equipment.

The building was constructed by Kier Eastern with whom Continental worked closely to ensure a seamless delivery of a snag-free end product to the client.

The facility contains full mens and womens artistic gymnastics equipment and includes the following gymnastics training equipment:

  • Two floor level sunken trampolines with spotting rig above
  • Recessed fast-track
  • Tumble track
  • Fully foam filled dismount pits
  • Full package of training equipment such as height adjustable high bar, low beams, wall bars, trampettes, bar trainers.

For clubs interested in replicating this facility, it measures 38m x 19m and we have provided a downloadable drawing of the facility on page of example gymnastics training facility layouts.

Prior to confirmation of the layout and the equipment required, representatives of Kier, R H Partnership and the University took the opportunity to visit the GMAC (Gymnastics and Martial Arts Centre) in Birmingham, one of Continental's flagship installations in the UK for inspiration and design ideas and to see construction methods for pits and other bespoke items.

If you would like to discuss the design of a new facility based on this or any of the other facilities fitted out by Continental, or you would like us to arrange for a visit to any of Continental's other installations such as GMAC, please call and ask to speak to our sales team on 01484 542 051
