Glasgow 2014 comes to Carrick

Hot on the heels of Andy Murray’s sensational success at Wimbledon, the Active Schools Team, supported by Sport Development and Community Sport Hubs, are presenting a series of Commonwealth Games Legacy Events.

The events are aimed at improving local awareness of the Commonwealth Games and offer local communities the opportunity to try different sports and take part in sport and physical activity.

The events bring together young coaches, young ambassadors and sports leaders who have all taken part in the Council’s Active Schools programme in school - and Girvan will host the first Legacy Day at Girvan Primary School on Saturday 13 July 2013, between 10:30am and 3pm.

The free event is part of Games for Scotland’s programme, designed to inspire, motivate, engage and engender pride in the people of Scotland in the run-up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Managed by EventScotland, Games for Scotland forms a key part of the Scottish Government’s commitment to deliver a lasting legacy as a result of the Commonwealth Games coming to Scotland.

So, if you fancy trying your hand at a range of sports including badminton, tennis, athletics and rugby with prizes and medals up for grabs, come along to Girvan primary for an afternoon of sporting fun.

The event is open to the whole community, with age and ability no barrier to having a great day out. There will also be face painting and entertainment for younger children and you’ll get the chance to meet some of the superb young sports coaches and ambassadors who helped organise and deliver the Legacy Day in Girvan.
