About the club

Linlithgow Sports Club is a not-for-profit club owned by its members and is a registered Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC 00290). The club is an active member of ClubSport West Lothian, actively engages with Active West Lothian and is an accredited club within West Lothian Council's club accreditation scheme. It is entirely managed by enthusiastic volunteers and is a proud member of the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations.

The club was founded in 1982
and offers multi sports activities to more than 400 members who enjoy excellent facilities, which include 4 floodlit all-weather tennis courts, 2 indoor heated squash courts and a top quality bowling green. The clubhouse provides changing facilities, showers and a locker room.

Lounge bar hire

 

There is also a comfortable lounge bar, which can be booked for private functions by both members and non-members. The lounge can hold approximately 60 standing or 40 seated. Unfortunately we cannot host parties for 21 year olds and under. There is a small kitchen area which can be used for food preparation. If we have sufficient notice we may be able to provide a bar service or you may bring your own drinks. Guests must leave by 23:30 and must take their own rubbish and recycling with them.

We welcome either regular or one-off bookings and can arrange discounts for regular bookings. We charge £10/hour and a deposit is required. If you have any questions please use the contact form to get in touch.


How the club is structured

General management of the club is the responsibility of the Board of Management which oversees general finance, maintenance and membership of the overall facility.

Each individual sport section has its own com
mittee to represent the members and to handle the issues associated with the running and development of their sport.

Each sport section holds an Annual General Meeting prior to a club-wide Annual General Meeting, scheduled in February each year. The club AGM is the opportunity for the BoM to report to the membership on past year's performance and developments, elect office bearers to committee positions for the year ahead and agree subscription fee levels. All members are encouraged to participate and have their say about their club.


Child/young person/vulnerable adult statement

Every child and young person/vulnerable adult who plays bowls, squash or tennis at this club should be allowed to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse. This is the responsibility of every club member.

The national governing bodies of sport recognise their responsibilities to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people by protecting them from physical, sexual, or emotional harm and from neglect or bullying. Child abuse is a very emotive and difficult subject and it is important to understand the feelings involved but not to allow them to interfere with judgement about actions to be taken. This club is determined to meet its obligations to ensure that all children and young people are allowed to participate in as safe an environment as possible. Any concerns of child abuse should be reported to the club's welfare officer.

The key principles underpinning this policy are:

  • The child’s welfare is and must always be the paramount consideration. Children have a right to be in a safe environment and the club will endeavor to provide that security.

  • All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.

  • ​All children and young people have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, gender, disability, culture, language, racial origin, religious belief or sexual identity.
