Sport Aberdeen appeals for information over rare incidence of vandalism at Torry Sports Centre


Windows have been smashed on the premises on two separate occasions, with the most recent panel on the front of the building being broken over this weekend (9th-10th December).

The registered charity today appealed to the local community to contact them with any information around what it described as a “very rare” incident of vandalism at the centre.

The cost to repair the two windows is estimated to be around £1,500.

Commenting, Sport Aberdeen Director for Operations and Asset Development Keith Gerrard said:

“Windows have been smashed on two separate occasions, with the most recent incident taking place between the 9th and 10th December.

“This is a very rare incident of vandalism and only the second time something of this nature has occurred at Torry Sports Centre since it opened ten years ago.  The centre is a cherished service in the community and many will share our disappointment at the extent of damage caused.

“Police Scotland and Aberdeen City Council have been notified and City Wardens will be increasing patrols in the area.  Sport Aberdeen would urge anyone with any information regarding the incident to contact Police Scotland on 101.”
