The number of people who are part of an active Community Sport Hub (CSH) in Scotland has more than doubled.

The CSH programme brings together sport clubs and community organisations to develop and grow sport at a local level.

Sportscotland has invested more than £12m in developing the hubs since 2011 and they form a central piece of the grassroots organisation's legacy plans for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The number of CSHs is now at an all-time high of 197 – an increase of 50 per cent since Glasgow 2014. During the same period, the number of sport club members actively part of hubs rose by 92 per cent – from 81,686 to 156,562.

"The growth of Community Sport Hubs over the last five years has been incredible and is at the heart of the wider sporting network’s commitment to building a more active Scotland," said Sportscotland chair Mel Young.

"We know from experience the life-changing effect of sport participation and that can be seen in hubs across the country."
