Edinburgh Southside Sporting Memories Club (Sporting Memories)

Availability : South East / South West

Who is this for?

This service is for older people, people living with dementia or other long term health conditions and their carers.


Love to talk about sport? Sporting Memories clubs are for older people to come together to talk and reminisce about sport. As well as a friendly welcome their volunteers provide fun and inclusive social and physical activities on a weekly basis. They want you to share your sporting passions with them and tell them about your favourite teams, special sporting moments and heroes. All over a cuppa and a biscuit with like-minded people.

Everyone is welcome to attend a Sporting Memories club. Some – but not all – of their members are living with dementia or low mood or are isolated; others simply enjoy the opportunity to meet other people. If you know a family member, neighbour, or colleague who you think would benefit from coming along to a weekly club please tell them about this club at the Southside Community Centre.
