Tomasz Aftański, deputy director of the Centre for Physical Education and Sport at UG, emphasises that the modern sports facilities will not only serve the university’s students and staff, but also the local community.

“We are open to cooperation with Polish sports associations, which is why we received funding from the Ministry of Sport for the construction of the hall,” – says Aftanski.

The construction of the Sports Centre at the University of Gdansk is a long-awaited investment that will significantly raise sports and recreational standards at the university. Thanks to modern sports facilities, the university will gain new opportunities to organise sports competitions and promote physical activity among students and residents of Gdańsk.
