The proposed new sports facilities are different in several ways from existing facilities:-
Firstly they will provide indoor tennis and golf facilities and a full size 3G football pitch which can be used by locals all year round. Stirling University has indoor tennis but court availability for the public is very limited due to the fact that block court times are held for use by Tennis Scotland. This is generally used for “high” performers only.
Secondly. There will be no “membership” payments to be able to access the Park of Keir facilities. Everyone can use of these on a “Pay & Play” basis.
Thirdly, entrance fees for the sports facilities will always be more affordable than any other existing facilities in local area.
Furthermore the Park of Keir facilities Golf & Tennis Centre will have a work force of qualified coaches running outreach programmes within local schools and clubs to increase the opportunity and provide the right environment to enable more kids to be able to play these sports.
Park of Keir will also create a purpose built venue to host coaching courses, competitions and exhibition matches.
