SPORTING FACILITIES

The grounds at Old Anniesland are home to a variety of sporting and fitness facilities.  The grassed areas and all weathyer pitches are used for different sports dependant on the time of year. 

During the winter season the emphasis is on Rugby and Hockey although other sporting activities take place on a regular basis.  There are five full sized rugby pitches with the main No 1 pitch being in front of the Jimmy Ireland Stand.  There are two synthetic Hockey pitches; a National level sand filled surface and a new Global level water based surface. There is also a new 3G artificial Multi-Use-Games-Area (MUDA) adjacent to the new hockey pitch.  The main rugby pitch, both hockey pitches, the 3G MUGA  and two rugby training pitches enjoy full floodlighting.

At Easter time the facilities are re-organised for summer sports.  The main cricket wicket situated opposite the Memorial Pavilion comes into play along with two or three other wickets allowing up to three games of cricket to be played simultaneously.  Over the cricket pitches, athletics tracks and areas for field events are marked out.  This is also the time where the sand filled all-weather hockey pitch is converted into 12 tennis courts.

Within the Jimmy Ireland Stand there is also a fitness and CV suite.  Individual membership to this useful fitness facility is available for an annual sum.

There are various changing facilities for teams and officials both in the Jimmy Ireland Stand and the Memorial Pavilion.

SOCIAL AND HOSPITALITY FACILITIES

The Memorial Pavilion, built in 1927, is the traditional home of the Glasgow High School Club.  It houses the club bar along with a suite of function rooms capable of hosting up to 120 guests.
