Sports Hub Update

You may not know this but the sports facilities at the Community School of Auchterarder are also

open to the community outwith school hours and throughout the summer holidays. A charity, the

Auchterarder & District Community Sports Hub was created 2 years ago to operate it on behalf of the

community and whilst the astroturf was open through most of the winter, the indoor facilities only

reopened to everyone on the 16th May 2022.

We now employ 3 members of staff – duty manager Victoria Bond and 2 leisure assistants Ruby and


We have a sports hall with 5 courts and all the equipment suitable for badminton, short tennis,

volleyball, basketball, table tennis and 5-aside football to name but a few along with a fully

functioning gym with treadmills, cable pulldown machines, elipticals, spinning bikes and a variety of

free weights. There is also the full size astroturf and hopefully in the not too distant future, 2

external multi use game areas which need a bit of TLC to be fit for use and we are working with PKC

to achieve that. We are open Mon to Thu 6 to 9pm and Sat morning 9 to 12 so come along and see

what we have to offer! Enquiries and bookings can be made via and

keep an eye on our facebook page and instagram for updates.

Given our situation of trying to open in the summer after a global pandemic, we are immensely

grateful to three local charities, Friends of St Margaret’s, Auchterarder & District Community Trust

and the Auchterarder Common Good Fund for their financial support. We really wouldn’t have been

able to do this without them! Thank you also to the local community who continued to encourage us

to reopen the Sports Hub.

Initial uptake has been encouraging but we do need some more support from the community to

keep financially viable and continue to grow. We have many ideas to develop sport and participation

in the community (all ages and demographics) and are looking at supporting initiatives already with

other organisations. If you are interested in becoming more involved, we would love to hear from

you, especially more Trustees as we navigate forward. If you’re interested, send us an email and

we’d be happy to chat.
