Sports and Rehabilitation Centre
The Sports and Rehabilitation Centre at AKU offers world-class facilities for a variety of indoor, outdoor and water sports. It is a one-of-its-kind facility in Pakistan, equipped with an Olympic-sized swimming pool as well as a state-of-the-art, multipurpose gymnasium. There are also numerous outdoor sports facilities, available to both members and external users.
The architecture of the complex, set in 12.5 acres of landscaped environment, draws inspiration from traditional Islamic buildings.
The Centre was commissioned in November 1999 and formally inaugurated on October 20, 2000 by the Chancellor, His Highness the Aga Khan. The Sports Centre could not have been completed without the help of thousands of supporters, both big and small. These 6,000 youth and youth groups are recognised in a Donors' Area, where their names have been sandblasted onto glass panels.
