Sports Councils

South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture supports the work of the four local Sports Councils within South Lanarkshire: Cambuslang and Rutherglen, Clydesdale, East Kilbride and Hamilton.

The Sports Councils are primarily voluntary organisations with the main responsibility of promoting interest and participation in sport and organising events and championships within their local areas.

The day-to-day promotion of participation in sports is carried out by each organisation's Executive Committee, appointed yearly at their respective Annual General Meetings.
