Hillhead Community Sports Hub

Hillhead Sports Club supported by Glasgow Life, are delighted to announce that the Club is now actively delivering sport and physical activity as a Community Sports Hub in the City. Formerly a member’s only Club, Hillhead is now offering more sports and leisure opportunities to increasing numbers of people from the local area and beyond, and is adding more all the time.

The Community Sports Hub Program is an initiative from Sportscotland supported by Glasgow Life to encourage local, volunteer run Sports Clubs to get together, share facilities and initiatives and develop partnerships to ensure continued growth and sustainability of more local Sports Clubs.

 

In addition to the core sports of Cricket, Rugby and Tennis as well as a fully equipped gym and range of fitness classes, partnerships between Hillhead Sports Club and other clubs means more Sports are now calling Hillhead their Home. Shinty and Ultimate Frisbee are regularly making use of Hillhead’s pitches for training and playing and recently the Club has launched itself as a Cycling Hub. The Hub will be developing regular SkyRide events and junior cycling activities as well as establishing the Club as somewhere that local cyclists see as somewhere to meet, socialise and in time hopefully become a home of cycling in the West End. For younger people, a range of Holiday Sports Camps offer fun activities for the longer School breaks, where kids can try a range of sports and activities safely in the confines of the Sports Club.

 

Hillhead Chairman Keith Fowler says “Becoming a Community Sports Hub is an import and exiting phase in the evolution of Hillhead, helping us to develop more activities in order to offer more opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to become involved in Sport in their local community”. Vicki Holmes, Development Officer from Glasgow Life, adds “Hillhead is quickly becoming one of the largest Community Sports Hubs in Glasgow as it gives increasing numbers of people across the wider community the chance to participate in sport in a friendly, welcoming environment”.
