Due to stormwater flooding in late 2018, LSF was closed due to structural damage of the roof, ceilings, and electrical system. University maintenance commenced repair and upgrade works at LSF in late March. MU Sport is hopeful that the facility will reopen around mid May 2019.
The University and MU Sport apologise for the inconvenience and are doing everything possible to reopen the facility as soon as possible. Further updates will be provided in due course. The Beaurepaire and Nona Lee Sports Centres are open as normal.
Vale the Honourable John Spence Winneke
