Named after Oxford graduate and Olympic medal winner Acer Nethercott, the state-of-the-art sports centre is part of a major redesign of the University’s sports facilities which are located on the historic Iffley Road.
A 699 m² ASB MultiSports floor illuminates the sports hall: The dark, anthracite sports floor enables teachers, students and athletes to display their desired court marking lines individually.
Jon Roycroft, the director of sport for the University of Oxford, said it would end the ‘spaghetti junction’ feel of regular sports halls where dozens of confusing lines intersect with one another. The hall will be available to rent by local clubs for tournaments and events, especially outside of term time when it will be less well-used by the University’s more than 50 clubs.
The LED marking lines include: Badminton, Basketball, Futsal, Football, Handball, Dodgeball, Football, Korfball and Volleyball.
