The River Tay Community Sport Hub brings together sport clubs and community organisations who want to develop and grow the sporting offering on and around the River Tay.
The Hub members work together on sustainable, community-led approaches to develop welcoming, safe and fun environments for sport.
The River Tay Community Sport Hub meets roughly every 6 weeks and since inception has worked on a number of projects, such as:
2023 – Between the Bridges Event. 24th May 2023, clubs within the hub will put on a showcase of all the sports and activities that use the River Tay in a HUB promotional event. Starting at 7:45pm on the 24th with a Gazebo station across from 2 High Street, club members will be available to chat with members of the public about accessing sports clubs that use the river and watch all of the activities taking place between the Queens and Smeaton Bridges.
