Riseholme College is committed to sport, both as a career and lifestyle choice.

We understand the value of sport in not only improving physical and mental wellbeing, but also developing teamwork and leadership skills that can be crucial in later life.

Sports and Health Science Centre

Riseholme College recently opened a new, dedicated Sports and Health Science Centre as part of the £11.5million second phase development of the Showground Campus, on Lincolnshire Showground.

The facility includes a state-of-the-art gym, multi-use sports hall and flood-lit all weather pitch. These facilities are beneficial to our sports students’ studies but are also available for use by other students and the wider general public.

We're pleased to announce that the new gym at our Showground campus is now open to the public as well as to students and staff!
