A new sports centre is opening in the heart of Florida’s University of South Florida campus.
The new outdoor sports centre opened Friday at the University of Miami.
“I think it’s a really exciting day,” said University of Southern Florida President Dr. Gary Smith.
“It’s been a long time since we have a sports centre open in our campus.
This is the first one and it’s going to be the first in the area.”
The indoor sports centre at the school opened in October 2015, and opened for the first time in February of this year.
Smith said the indoor sports complex at U.S.F. includes a swimming pool, weight room, gym, basketball court, ice rink and a track.
He said it will also have an indoor practice facility, weightlifting, fitness classes and more.
The university has been in talks with local governments to build a new indoor facility.
The U.K. National Sports Centre opened in 2007 and is the largest sports centre in the UK.
It has a gymnasium, tennis courts, weight lifting and sports science centre.
