Dundee North West Community Sports Club
Dundee North West Community Sports Club (SCO43273) was formed in 2009 and gained legal status when it became a SCIO in July 2012.
The Community Club consists of 6 local sports club; Dundee West Football Club, Tayside Fire Brigade AFC, Dundee City Woman’s FC, Stobswell Rugby Club, Downfield Junior FC and Madsons Basketball Club.
Dundee West, Stobswell Rugby Club and Tayside Fire Brigade AFC originally came together to form the Hub through their shared use of Charlotte Street Pavilion and adjacent Playing Fields.
Since taking on a Long term Lease of the Pavilion at Charlotte Street in November 2012 the pavilion has been redeveloped with all 7 changing rooms decorated and re-floored, the showers, WC’s and sinks replaced. This was achieved through funding from the Criminal Justice Funding & Sport Scotland.
Upstairs in the Pavilion was also refurbished and has turned what was an old office type facility into a Meeting Room, Activity Room, Lounge Area and Kitchen as well as a couple of storage areas. This was mainly achieved by the Community Club receiving donations in kind from local firms within the Community. A local joinery firm donated a Kitchen and a Painting & Decorating Firm decorated the upstairs of the Pavilion and supplied decorating material.
The Community Sports Club were previously successful in gaining changing containers through the Scottish Football Partnership. These have been installed to the side of the Pavilion while further to this the Community Club received funding from Dundee Partnership which allowed them to Fence and Mono-block the area around these containers. In addition Dundee Partnership funding has been used to fit extra lighting to the front of the pavilion benefiting teams in the winter and ensuring safer access to the pavilion.
The group are currently looking at more ways of engaging with the Community. Already the Club have a partnership with the National Autistic Society which has developed a PARA football team and opens up the Hub to the Local Community more of the time.
The Hub are ambitious to continue their development which has been outlined by welcoming Madsons Basketball Club to become Hub members in addition to taking on the running of the sports facilities at Baldragon Academy in the evening and at weekends. This opportunity has enabled the Hub to provide its members with quality indoor and outdoor facilities all year round. The Hub aim to develop this relationship with Baldragon Academy moving forward to work in partnership to increase the number of people in Strathmartine participating in sport and physical activity. Dundee West and Madsons have both successfully gained Direct Club Investment from Sportscotland to support the delivery of football and basketball in the Baldragon cluster which will enable the Hub to increase opportunities for participation.
