Playsport has been acquired by Investors Steve and Alison Timoney, who have been involved with basketball for many years.
The Timoney’s have recently acquired the Glasgow Rocks and have re-braded the basketball team as the Caledonia Gladiators, both for the men’s and women’s teams. Playsport has been purchased to provide a home venue for the Caledonia Gladiators, who are the only Scottish team within the professional British Basketball League.
The Timoney’s plans for Playsport are very exciting and are currently in progress. A new 1,800 seater sports arena and fan zone has just been completed. In addition, a new state of the art purpose built 6,000 seater arena will be constructed, together with a 5 court practice community facility, all of which are due to be completed in 2026.
Playsport also provides a leisure destination in its own right. With a golf course, driving range, American Golf retail store, Anytime Fitness, Football Centre and Lollipop Land Children’s Play Venue. The centre provides one of the main bespoke leisure destinations with Scotland and is ideal for sports retailing.
