University of Hertfordshire opens sports centre
TOP sports physiotherapists, strength and conditioning coaches and the leaders of community sport in the county are all now housed under one roof.
The Sports Performance and Development Centre, based at Hertfordshire Sports Village on the University of Hertfordshire’s de Havilland campus, is a new hub.
The centre is based next to the sports village gym, vacated by Saracens rugby club last season.
Sharing the property are Performance Hertfordshire – a specialist strength and conditioning service for sports clubs or individual athletes looking for a tailor-made programme to boost performance – and the Bodybalance physiotherapy clinic.
The centre also has the offices of Hertfordshire Sports Partnership – which is devoted to increasing sports participation – and the Saracens Sports Foundation, which aims to use sport to change young people’s lives.

“There is a natural synergy between us as we have key aspects of sport, health, community delivery and specialist expertise in common.
