How does the First Minister's latest announcements affect the activities you are able to offer?

      We welcome the First Minister's most recent announcement and the easing of restrictions. For Edinburgh Leisure this currently means:

      • Leisure centres opened for individual exercise on the 26th of April, including gyms, swimming pools, indoor court hire, racquet sports and children's coaching. 
      • Adult group fitness may restart on 17th May dependent on continuing relaxation of restrictions by the Scottish Government.
      • Our golf courses remain open (weather permitting).  
      • Our outdoor tennis courts remain open (weather permitting). You can read the latest guidelines from Tennis Scotland here.
      • Contact sports for 12-17 year olds resumed from the 5th of April. 
      • From the 19th of April, community access to high school sports facilities restarted with access to outdoor pitches. If you are a club with a booking with us, our team will be in touch directly. 
      • We will continue live streaming fitness classes, with membership and pay-as-you-go options available. Find out more here.

      Please bear with us and continue to check our website as we work through these changes. We are looking forward to bringing them into force as we work our way towards greater normality.

      You can read the Scottish Government's timetable for easing restrictions here.
