Working with sports teams and individuals with their own specific goals is a keen passion of the team at Space.
Through our Club and Athlete Support Programme, we are able to design specific support packages to help you or your team achieve your targets. For further information about both programmes please contact the clinic
We are delighted to give of our expertise and skills as the official sports injury clinic to the following:
Scottish Touch Rugby
Space has acted as principal sponsor to the Scotland National Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Touch squads since 2008, notably in preparation for and at European and World Championships including the World Cup in Coffs Harbour in Australia in April 2015 and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2019 where the Mixed Open Team won bronze to become the first northern hemisphere country to win a medal.
Touch is a minimal contact sport involving running, agility, passing and catching with rules similar to Rugby League. There are 14 players in a team, with 6 on the pitch at one time. Age group and mixed gender teams means it appeals to a wide range of ages, abilities and physiques. It is hugely popular here in Edinburgh with all levels catered for. Check out:
Edinburgh University Volleyball Club
We have 5 competitive teams (two men, three women) all competing in BUCS and Scottish National League, and two recreational mixed teams. We welcome players from novice towards international level. Each team has a qualified coach for the whole season and train once or twice per week. Besides volleyball and beach action on court, we organize social events for both alumni and students.
Trans Alba Race
The Trans Alba Race is a self-supported cycling ride around Scotland. Covering over 1,000 miles and 50,000 feet of climbing. Riders follow a predetermined route whilst abiding to a simple set of seven rules.
Sounds easy right? Well, self-supported means self supported, riders are responsible for all their navigation and logistics whilst remaining completely self reliant throughout the event. Simply – you’re on your own!
We are incredibly proud to help support the Trans Alba Race and our clinical manager Kenny Watt will be on hand at Race Registration to provide input to any riders in need. Post-race the entrants will be able to access our services for any issues picked during their unbelievable effort.
