Doug Ellis, former chair of Aston Villa Football Club, has helped mark the official unveiling of Aston University's new-look Woodcock Sports Centre, following a £5m revamp.

The centre has been renamed the Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre in honour of Ellis, an honorary graduate of the institution and who made the lead gift towards the scheme.

Facilities at the new-look venue include a new 120-station gym with Life Fitness cardiovascular machines and free weights; a refurbished sports hall; and an upgraded swimming pool area.

A two-storey facility with martial arts, fitness and dance studios; a new sauna, steamroom and changing rooms; and improved badminton, basketball and netball provision are also included.

Aston University acquired the sports centre building from Birmingham City Council in 1980, which includes the Grade II-listed pool - the city's oldest working swimming facility.

Professor Julia King, vice chancellor of Aston University, said: "The Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre highlights the university's commitment to providing first rate sports facilities that will make a real difference to the city.

"The centre will greatly benefit our own students' campus experience, external sports clubs which regularly use our facilities, and local schools and others living around us."
