What are we?

Since the city council established us as a not-for-profit company in 1998 to run their sport and leisure services, we’ve been working our little cotton socks off to create as many opportunities as we possibly can for the people of Edinburgh to enjoy a healthier, happier and more active lifestyle. We're now a leading leisure trust with a turnover of £23 million and growing, 750 employees and over 4.1 million customers a year.

We run a whole range of facilities, including: sports and leisure centres, swim centres, golf courses, tennis courts, bowling greens, outdoor football pitches and, now, the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, Ratho.
