Sports hub scores four stars

Our dedicated sports hub in Lumphinnans has received a four star grading following a recent Visit Scotland inspection which praised the facility’s excellent condition.

Lumphinnans Sport Hub provides state-of-the-art, full-size 3G synthetic turf pitch and gives improved facilities for local players as well as a home for the Fife Football Performance Academy.

Following the recent Visit Scotland inspection the facility has had its four star rating confirmed for a second year. Its review classed as the facility as ‘excellent’ for Hospitality and Friendliness, ‘Service and Efficiency’ and toilets were ‘exceptional’, in addition, staff’s ‘can do’ attitude was praised.

Allan Reid, area leisure manager from Fife Sports and Leisure Trust said: “We are very pleased our four star rating has been awarded again, we scored 82 per cent, only a few points away from scoring five stars, taking us from ‘excellent’ to ‘outstanding’ – this gives us something to aim towards.  We are committed to delivering quality facilities which allow people, of all abilities and ages, to access sports and leisure opportunities so they can benefit from the health and wellbeing benefits of physical activity.”

The purpose-built sports hub benefits from flood lighting, a dedicated car park and a community club house offering modern changing facilities. As well as being a vital resource for clubs and talented young sports performers, Lumphinnans Sports Hub is an important venue for the local community for general pitch hire.
