Hamilton Sports Council
Hamilton Sports Council is one of four Sports Councils within South Lanarkshire; the others being Clydesdale, East Kilbride and Cambuslang and Rutherglen. It is run by an Executive Committee of volunteers who meet monthly. The Executive members are responsible for specific sports or pursuits but work together in different sub-committees to look after the many events and activities required to support a busy sporting calendar.
Hamilton Sports Council’s main aim is to encourage involvement and participation in amateur sport within what was previously known as Hamilton District (which includes Ashgill, Burnbank, Blantyre, Bothwell, Ferniegair, Hamilton, Larkhall, Netherburn, Quarter, Stonehouse and parts of Uddingston).
It achieves this by supporting, organising and being actively involved in events for a wide range of sports including football, rugby, badminton, athletics, curling, martial arts and bowling. Hamilton Sports Council also provides grant assistance to individuals and Clubs to help support them in any way it can.
