Information

Bangor University’s Ffriddoedd accommodation site dates back to the 1940s, with more modern halls of residence being added in the 1990s and again in 2009. In 1998 a £1.65m sports centre, known as Maes Glas, was also built at the complex. A £2.5m renovation of this university sports facility, which is also open to the public, started in 2013 and was completed in July 2014. The centre was renamed the Canolfan Brailsford Sports Centre, in honour of Deiniolen-bred David Brailsford, former performance director of British Cycling, under whose coaching the British team won 12 medals at the London 2012 Olympics. The centre’s sports dome, which was opened in 2013 by Sebastian Coe, houses indoor netball and tennis courts.
