Multi-purpose new-look sports hall flooring unveiled at Kirkcaldy Leisure Centre

We are unveiling a new, multi-purpose playing surface in the sports hall of its Kirkcaldy facility.

As a charitable trust responsible for the operation and management of Kirkcaldy Leisure Centre – we are welcoming customers back to the hall following works to replace and enhance its flooring.

The replacement flooring – funded and delivered by Fife Council – is suitable for a wide range of core sports including football, badminton, basketball, netball and volleyball. It will also be able to accommodate roller hockey and has been marked up so that futsal can be played on the surface too.

Following the five-week closure for the works, we are gearing up to launch our programme of activities, deliver school holiday camps designed for youngsters, and, welcome new users to the facility.

Local gymnasts try out the new sports hall flooring watched on by Cllr Judy Hamilton with Scott Bramall, duty manager, Fire Sports and Leisure Trust.

Paul Hossack, area leisure manager for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “There will be lots on offer for customers of all ages and abilities including football and gymnastics classes and a choice of sports camps for youngsters. We are especially pleased to be welcoming back regular and club users who had to use alternative sites during the closure – it’s great to see them make use of the hall again. The centre is enjoying fantastic supp

“The centre is enjoying fantastic support by customers – the hall is well used by a variety of groups, and, the gym, fitness studio and swimming pools continue to be very popular. We’d like to thank customers for their patience during the works and we are confident that they will benefit enormously from the new playing surface in the hall.”

Cllr Judy Hamilton, Convener of Fife Council’s Community and Housing Services Committee added: “I’m extremely pleased that Kirkcaldy Leisure Centre will continue to be the home of roller hockey for so many local young enthusiasts. This improved surface gives the trust the opportunity to help nurture interest in a wide range of sports and offer its customers a high-quality experience.”
