Sheddocksley Sports Centre which is operated by award winning community leisure trust Sport Aberdeen, has reopened following a comprehensive programme of refurbishment and modernisation.

Transformed by £350,000 of investment, Get active @ Sheddocksley now provides an outstanding community facility with a fantastic health, fitness and wellbeing offer.

Extensive remodelling work has created a 60 station fitness suite boasting the latest in premium fitness equipment, a dedicated functional training room and a new group exercise studio.

Modernised interiors, including a larger, more welcoming reception are bolstered by external carpark and landscape works. These improvements have been complimented by a vibrant mural wrapping to the external building undertaken by Kekun Studio.

Get Active @ Sheddocksley, will be formally opened and renamed later in the year.

Colin Taylor, Chairman of Sport Aberdeen, said:

“It is very exciting for us to welcome the local community back into their newly modernised centre. I am delighted that we have been able to make this important investment and am grateful to Aberdeen City Council who also supported the project. The investment into Get active @ Sheddocksley has vastly enhanced the offering available to the people of Sheddocksley and improved the extensive range of facilities that Sport Aberdeen provides across the city.

“Sport Aberdeen is committed to creating opportunities, inspiring and supporting people to participate in physical activity, including those who are not currently regularly active. I am confident Get active @ Sheddocksley and everything it offers will be a real attraction to new members alongside our current loyal customer base.”

In addition to the improved facilities, Get active @ Sheddocksley now offers extended weekday and weekend opening hours, with access from 6.00am to 10.00pm during the week and 8.00am to 6.00pm at weekends.
