Over 300 people enjoyed an afternoon of fun and games at Clydebank Leisure Centre as the facility marked its first anniversary.

The £23.8million centre opened last March to replace the Play Drome, complete with three swimming pools, changing facilities, a café, multi-purpose sports hall with badminton, netball, basketball, and five-a-side football courts and retractable seating, fitness suite, and group exercise studio. It also has Scotland’s first interactive flume ride.

To celebrate the milestone, martial arts clubs who use the centre, Titan Judo, Ultimate Taekwando, Kokusai Karate, TKA Karate, put on demonstrations and held taster sessions.

On the other side of the sports hall a massive inflatable darts board was set up, which many had a go kicking footballs onto to try and hit the bullseye.

Kids also had a great time jumping around on the bouncy castle and making their way down a giant inflatable slide.

Cameron Taylor, manager at the leisure centre, hailed the success of the celebration and told the Clydebank Post has been going from strength to strength.

He said: “It has been very busy and its getting busier all the time as you would expect with a brand new building. It’s a fantastic facility.

“We are finding that a lot of people are coming from out with the area and a lot of schools are using it and looking forward to getting more schools in this year. Some schools like using it so much they have sent every class along.

“The feedback we got from people taking part (in the anniversary day) was excellent. The clubs were happy because they got to show off what they can do and, hopefully, they will have made some new members from it.

“We are happy the place was busy, it seemed to go very well and we are delighted.”

In addition to the sports hall event, swimmers were able to take a dip in the pool for just a pound and there was half price entry to the Saturday family night.

The night which runs from 4pm to 7pm is designed to give families the opportunity to take part in various activities together, use the gym if they have had an induction and go swimming.
