News and Events

Last week the First Minister announced that the country has moved into Phase 2 of the Scottish Government’s Route map. This means that from next week outdoor sports centres and outdoor sports courts can begin to reopen. (We are not yet permitted to open the inside facilities at ASV, such as our pools, gym, football pitch etc). 

We are therefore delighted that we will soon be able to start a phased reopening, beginning with our outdoor facilities. This will be gradual, cautious and closely aligned to Scottish Government and Sportscotland guidance.

Most importantly the safety of you and our staff will be at the heart of this. Social distancing restrictions will mean that our capacity will be reduced (initially at least), but this is a really important first step to welcoming members, clubs and customers back to our wonderful facilities – we have missed you!

We will be posting regular updates with more details soon and we would ask for your patience as we make the preparations. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you back to ASV!

We would like to say a big thank you to the overwhelming number of customers who have been in touch and kindly said they would like to continue paying for their memberships during our temporary closure. We know our members are the very best and we are incredibly grateful.  

ASV is a charity, so we are different to many other providers in that every penny we make is reinvested back into the services and facilities we provide. From classes and lessons, coaching and courses, kids programmes and sessions for our over 60s, it is your membership and support that we depend upon to provide all of this.

If you too can help over this uncertain time, please continue to support ASV by clicking this link.

All monthly memberships, other than those who complete the form at the link above, will be frozen automatically until we reopen. This means we won’t take any further payments during this period, and you don’t need to do anything. If you have paid up front for an annual membership, we will extend the end date for you when we reopen, and make sure you receive the full term.

Until we can welcome you back to ASV, do please check in regularly on our social media channels, where you will see some familiar faces with great ideas to help you to keep active at home.      

Thanks again for your support, and stay safe.

Statement from British Swimming 2/4/20;

Due to the now widespread outbreak of COVID-19, the Stakeholder Group and Local Organising Committees (LOC) within the UK, in agreement with Ligue Européenne de Natation (LEN), have taken the decision to postpone the LEN European Junior Diving and European Junior Swimming Championships, set to take place in Edinburgh and Aberdeen respectively this July.

We realise this will come as a disappointment to the athletes, teams and federations who have been looking forward to competing in this event, however, following the advice of both the UK and Scottish Governments, both of the venues involved are closed indefinitely to protect public health.

Consultation is on-going with LEN as to whether a suitable date to rearrange the championships can be found in 2021, however it is not possible to name a date at the current time. British Swimming will communicate an update as soon as one is available, but at this present time the health, safety and well-being of everyone in the aquatics community is our number one priority.

With a heavy heart, Aberdeen Sports Village has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Baker Hughes Aberdeen Running Festival. While a difficult decision, it is the right one which we are sure all our runners will understand and support. 

The decision to postpone needs no explanation as the world fights to slow down the spread of the Coronavirus and save lives. This long-standing community event will survive and indeed thrive in 2021 and beyond, and when the time is right we will share our ambitious plans for 2021 which will be bigger and better than ever!

All the athletes and runners who registered for 2020 will be refunded automatically and we will look forward to your entry in 2021. For the moment, the most important thing is to stay safe and for those of us who need that running fix, a gentle reminder that there are many good home workouts available. 

Finally, please remember to stay in touch through our social media channels, it would be great to hear from you.
