Link With Bristol University Gives Access to Olympic Weights Facility

27 Apr

An initiative prompted by club Sprints Coach Alastair Abrams has now given club members access to the University of Bristol’s Olympic Weight Lifting facility at the Coombe Dingle Sports Complex, Coombe Lane, Stoke Bishop, Bristol BS9 2BJ. Alastair is running these sessions himself from 6.30 to 8.00 p.m. on a Monday night. The fee for use of the facility is £35 per quarter – a bargain when compared to most gym memberships. As well as Monday nights once given a proper safety induction club members will be able to train at other times (unless there is a block booking for University Club use – such bookings will be very infrequent over the summer). If you would like to find out more about this then please contact Keith Brackstone – Club Development Adviser at
