Albury Community Sports Hub Open Day is a sunny success!


The Albury Community Sports Hub Open Day is typically an annual fixture in the events calendar – however due to Covid-19, the last event took place in 2019.

The community sport team at Sport Aberdeen worked closely with the hub to plan and deliver its 2023 event, which took place on Saturday 27 May and was a great success!

Over 200 attendees gathered to enjoy the sun, meet new people, connect with others in the local community and take a look at the activities the hub has to offer.

On the day, free activity taster sessions for attendees included tennis, pickleball, lawn bowls, putting, petanque and croquet – these are available all year round.

Albury Community Sports Hub is run by a dedicated team of volunteers who handle the day-to-day management of the facility and delivery of activities, support by Sport Aberdeen’s community sport team.

The hub is nestled in a lovely green space in Ferryhill and is a real leafy gem in the city centre.    

It was great to see the open day so busy and a successful example of the power of community sport in action.  

Sport Aberdeen hopes to build on this and encourage more collaboration between sports clubs and community organisations, to grow participation in sport and physical activity across Aberdeen.
