Official Opening for the new 3G Pitch in Girvan

Victory Park Opening July

An official opening was held yesterday, Monday 8 July, for the new 3G pitch at Victory Park in Girvan which has significantly enhanced sporting facilities in the area. 

The £1.4 million project has been ongoing since October 2023, and has been operational from Monday 13 May.

Councillors, Chief Officers and Provost Iain Campbell were joined by a range of local community organisations, sports clubs, and Community Councils to mark the occasion, celebrating the benefits to the wider community in Girvan and South Carrick.

The nearby playpark is also being relocated as part of the works, ensuring it can still be enjoyed by local children, and should be completed soon.

South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Sport and Leisure, Councillor Brian Connolly, said: "This is brilliant news for the area, and it was great to come together with the whole community to celebrate at the official opening event. The new pitch has significantly enhanced the sports and leisure facilities available to the people of Girvan and will make a real difference for local people.

"There's been a clear appetite for a facility that can be used all year round for a variety of activities, and I know many local sports clubs will benefit from the use of the new pitch."

South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio for Tourism, Culture and Rural Affairs, Councillor Alec Clark, said: "I'm delighted that the works on the 3G all-weather pitch are complete, and we've been able to mark its official opening. It's been a long time coming and Victory Park is a brilliant, central location for this new pitch, with Girvan Academy and Girvan Primary in very close proximity.

"It demonstrates our commitment to providing first class facilities in our towns and villages, and I look forward to seeing it become a hub for local sport." 

The pitch will be bookable via our Sport & Leisure app, and more information can be found here.
