The Brownlee Centre is named after Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, two of the most successful triathletes of their time and two of the University of Leeds’ most successful sporting alumni. The Brownlee Centre is the UK’s first purpose-built triathlon training centre and is the permanent home for the world leading Leeds Triathlon Centre, of which the University of Leeds is a key partner.

The Brownlee Centre boasts 14 changing rooms for users of all the facilities at Bodington Playing Fields alongside a new top floor social space with meeting room. It also has a balcony giving views of the cycle circuit and sports pitches beyond.
