Chapel Gate, based near Bournemouth International Airport, houses a wide range of sporting facilities and fields for sports such as football, rugby, cricket, hockey and squash. The site is managed by BU Community Business Ltd (BUCB) which has been set up to ensure community and university activities continue to thrive.
The university has been a user of the site for a number of years, with university clubs and teams training and playing on the site. The purchase of the site in 2019 by BU from Bournemouth and District Recreational Charity (BDRC) enables the university to create deeper links with the community and further develop a sports community around the area, as well as providing a continuing space for staff and students to use.
Bookings to use facilities can be made through the Chapel Gate site.
