This summer we have a fantastic line-up of events and activities to enjoy at Oriam. Take a read through our newsletter for the latest Oriam news and events this month. If you have a news story or event you would like to add to our newsletter please let us know!


Take a look at our What’s On section to find out about events activities coming up at Oriam this month. We host a wide variety of events, matches and activities throughout the year. Unfortunately, not all of them are open to the public but we will keep you up to date when we can! 

Go To What's On in July


Our teams are always working hard behind the scenes, planning and delivering facility maintenance and improvements so you can enjoy Oriam activities to their fullest. 

We have some exciting news coming soon for our facilities at Oriam. Keep your eyes peeled on our social media channels for more details coming soon. 

Please note that we will have a reduced service day on 17th August. Oriam will be open from 8am-8pm that day due to All Staff Training.


From the 1st August this year, Oriam will be going cashless. This means that all payments in our facilities will need to be made by card or contactless (iphone or android devices) and our Tuk-tuk and Reception areas will no longer accept cash or keep any change. 

Going cashless will make for a more efficient and consistent experience for everyone in our reception and hospitality areas. It will also free-up more time and resources to help us connect with our customers and develop new projects for our communities. 
We will be sending out more details by email and app notifications soon!



Scottish Squash have been busy with final preparations for 6 athletes selected for the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. It is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the depth of talent Scotland can produce, congratulations to all athletes headed to Birmingham for August. We will keep you up to date with competition dates and results for our athletes throughout the games. 

In partnership with Scottish Squash we are also participating in Love Squash Week. Facilities all over the country are opening their doors to their community to come and try Squash. We will be offering free squash access to our community from the 1st to 8th August 2022. Details on how to book a free squash session will be coming soon!


Pre-Season training is in full swing. It has been great to see our newly refurbished performance facilities being tested out by the clubs.

Last month we welcomed Cardiff City to Oriam for their Scottish Pre-season camp. It was great to have the team stay with us and we look forward to other teams visiting us in the coming weeks. 


Our Fitness Team have a fun filled summer ahead, we’re developing a new group exercise class timetable, creating new gym challenges and more. If you have any questions about your fitness routine or classes our fitness team are in the gym and happy to help when they’re not teaching. 

We are now seeking experienced class instructors to join our team and deliver a range of fresh classes for our new Group Exercise timetable. We are especially interested in qualified Les Mills instructors to join our team and help us re-launch Les Mills classes at Oriam! Added bonus, all of our freelance instructors can enjoy complimentary access to our Fitness Suite! Contact to find out more about our class instructor opportunities.

We hope to launch a whole new class timetable in September. We have also launched a new Fitness Training page so you can find out more about all of our fitness services including Inductions, Personal Training and our My Wellness App.
