Revolutionizing Sports at Oxford University

At the heart of the University of Oxford, a pioneering revolution has taken place in the field of sports infrastructure. In collaboration with ASB GlassFloor, Oxford's brand-new Acer Nethercott Sports Centre boasts our state-of-the-art MultiSports floor, marking an exciting new chapter in the evolution of the University’s historic Iffley Road sports facilities.

The Story Behind

The University of Oxford, an esteemed institution with a rich legacy dating back to the 12th century, has always been at the forefront of innovation and excellence. In their continuous pursuit of exceptional standards, their latest renovation of the university's sports facilities stands as a testament to this ethos. Part of this major redesign included the introduction of ASB GlassFloor's MultiSports system in their state-of-the-art indoor sports centre named after Acer Nethercott, an Oxford graduate and Olympic medalist. This bold step was driven by Jon Roycroft, the University's Head of Sports, who saw the potential of this revolutionary glass flooring system. Beyond its durability and low maintenance, its unique feature of changeable LED marking lines allowed a seamless switch between different sports fields - a game changer for multi-sport arenas. With this new flooring system, the University of Oxford continues to intertwine tradition with innovation, fostering a superior sporting experience for their athletes, students, and special event attendees alike.
