Due to re-development of the University of Stirling’s Gannochy Sports Centre, the Commonwealth Games Scotland (CGS) office will be re-locating to Airthrey Castle from Thursday 21 June 2018 until the completion of building work in 2020.
Located just across the University of Stirling Campus, CGS will be joined at Airthrey Castle by a number of Scottish Governing Bodies as building work commences in the coming months.
Our new address is:
Commonwealth Games Scotland
Stirling, FK9 4LA
Phone and email contact details will remain the same.
Individual staff phone extensions and email addresses will also remain the same.
The £20 million transformation of the University of Stirling’s sports facilities will see Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence create an iconic new sports complex that will be integrated with existing world-class facilities.
The new building will include purpose-built studios, an innovative fitness suite, three-court sports hall, indoor cycling studio, strength and conditioning area, as well as a new state-of-the-art high performance suite. Users of the new building will also benefit from enhanced changing facilities and communal spaces. The National Swimming Academy, National Tennis Centre, sports hall and squash courts will remain in their current form.
Commonwealth and World champion swimmer, and University of Stirling scholar athlete, Duncan Scott said:
“The University is already renowned for its excellent sports facilities and I think the redevelopment will only enhance this reputation.
“The new building promises to be a great experience for all users and I know the new performance suite will help create an even better training environment for the University’s sports clubs and scholar athletes.”
Construction work of the new facility is due to commence in autumn this year, with the centre anticipated to be in operation by summer 2020.
Director of Sport, Cathy Gallagher, said: “This investment will literally break new ground in respect of sport, physical activity and wellbeing. Our ambition is to set standards at local, national and international levels and the significantly enhanced facilities will unleash new participation, innovative opportunities and an unrivalled experience.
“The unique feature of sport at the University of Stirling is the environment within which Olympic medallists train and compete alongside students, staff and the wider community. This development will mark the beginning of another exciting chapter for sport at the University and within the Stirling area.”
