The University of Ulster (UoU) is planning further development in sports facilities and services across its four campuses, and has commissioned consultants to draw up a facility strategy.

The university will open the University of Ulster High Performance Centre on its Jordanstown campus in October this year.

The £18m centre was funded by the Sports Council for Northern Ireland and the Department for Culture, Arts and Leisure as part of the development of the Sports Institute Northern Ireland (SINI).

University officials hope that the new centre will provide a launch pad to become the 'number one university in the island of Ireland'.

Director of sports development and services at UoU, Nigel Dobson, said: "Through the academy we are very determined to deliver a top class service to students, staff, local community, local clubs and governing bodies. We are also absolutely committed to the further successful development of SINI."

David Carpenter, director of TrioPlus, the consultants who will lead the strategic team, said: "We very much enjoyed doing the original work for the university to realise £18million of inward investment.

"We now have to press forward, put together a sound facilities strategy, and make the case to the Sports Council for Northern Ireland and other potential funders for further investment in critical mass to develop high performance, coaching, education and research."
