Introduction

I am seeking your cooperation in agreeing to complete a short survey (5-10 minutes) about East Kilbride Sports Club.

East Kilbride Sports Club (EKSC) is a community based Sports Club in Calderglen Country Park. 

We pride ourselves on being a family based club for all ages and abilities in the sports of rugby, cricket, harriers (cross country and road racing), tennis and golf. 

Our over-arching aim is to promote life skills and values, and pride in East Kilbride, through the unique culture of sport while having fun and making friendships.

We have 650 members, of whom 260 (41%) are young people aged 5 to 18. We have produced regional and international sportsmen and women in rugby, cricket and running and aspire to produce many, many more in the years ahead.

In our 48th year, we are a not-for-profit organisation, run and managed by volunteers.  Our Clubhouse needs some modernisation and our playing facilities are restricting our ability to absorb growing numbers of new members e.g. an expanding girls’ rugby section and growing numbers of female harriers. 

Our immediate short-term focus is modernisation of our changing rooms.  They need upgrading & reconfiguration to provide multi-purpose flexibility, improved female access, integrated showers, better disabled access & stronger child protection.

We are preparing three applications for grant support to Sportscotland, the Renewable Energy Fund and Virador Environmental Credits to supplement our own fund raising to allow us to modernise the changing rooms

Purpose of the Survey

We are keen to receive the views of the wider East Kilbride community on our activities.  These will be helpful to us in deciding how to take our immediate and longer term plans forward to provide competitive and recreational sport for the wider community and to build even stronger links with that community.

We would be grateful if you could complete this by Monday 5th March. 

Please be assured that all answers you provide will be kept in the strictest confidence.
