Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels is an official sponsor of Scotland’s Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) team Strathclyde Sirens for 2021/22 and, to kick start the partnership, the family is helping to launch a sporting summer, supporting a series of camps and outdoor recreational leagues.
The nine Summer Camps will be held across Emirates Arena Glasgow, Aberdeen Sports Village and at St George’s School for Girls in Edinburgh this July. Aimed at girls and boys aged 9-16, youngsters can challenge themselves with ball skills and fun fitness drills, as well as competing in friendly matches - all led by Sirens players.
In addition to the junior Summer Camps, Sirens Summer Social Leagues for junior, senior and bounce back teams will take place across Aberdeen, Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow in July and August.
CEO of Sirens and Netball Scotland, Claire Nelson, said: “The support from the Sirens Tribe throughout the Vitality Netball Superleague this year has been phenomenal and we are delighted to see our sport returning for women, girls and boys to participate in across local communities after being on hold due to the various lockdowns.
“Sport and wellbeing go hand in hand and with many of our young people missing out on the opportunity to take part in events such as these, which promotes both positive mental health and physical exercise, we can’t wait to be back out delivering more camps and events over the summer holidays. It’s fantastic to launch the partnership with Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, such an iconic Scottish brand. This is just the beginning and we’re so excited to see this return to netball.”
Fiona Leckie, Head of Design & Interiors and board member at Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Netball Scotland on the return to court this summer. The leagues and camps will give over 2000 women much needed escape from the day to day and a return to camaraderie and team games.
“In the last 12 months, families have been juggling work commitments and home schooling, having very little time outside the home so, in the same way that netball is good for mental health, we also see escaping to one of our eight locations across Scotland as good for the soul and wellbeing too.
“Our family has been helping families of all shapes, sizes and ages to create special memories for over 150 years and that’s why this partnership felt such a natural fit for us”.
Netball Scotland Summer Camps take place from 10am on Monday 5th July in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh. The two hour sessions are aimed at girls and boys aged 9-16 and cost from £15 per person with group discounts available. Sirens Summer Social Leagues launch in July and take place over eight weeks.
