What is new/has changed since you were last open?

During lockdown, despite being closed, we've continued to invest in our venues and services. Here's some new activities and changes you'll see in our venues:
  1. We're delighted to be reopening our ‘Refresh’ cafes at the Royal Commonwealth Pool and Level 1 at EICA Ratho.  

  2. We might not be able to run our indoor fitness classes but we're running outdoor fitness classes at Drumbrae Leisure Centre and Portobello Swim Centre.  Classes will be a mix of cardio and bodyweight exercises and will be bookable in the usual ways.  Follow this link to find out more.

  3. New bookable relaxed swim sessions for adults are being introduced at Portobello Swim Centre and the Royal Commonwealth Pool.  The pool will be divided width-wise into four.  Two of these areas will be for anyone who wants to swim widths, and customers won’t need to get out of the pool if they want to take a break, as long as social distancing is maintained.  The other two areas will be for customers who just want to enjoy the water but not necessarily swim widths.  Again, social distancing measures will apply. And we still have our bookable Family Swim sessions.

  4. New bookable one to one swim and dive coaching at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.  Suitable for beginners or those more experienced who want to improve their technique, helping customers to reach their goals quicker with expert coaching from an Edinburgh Leisure coach.

  5. There's also new Pre-school and Adult and Child swim lesson at Ainslie Park Leisure CentreFollow this link to see the timetable.

  6. We've introduced MyZone to Craiglockhart - the latest in wearable fitness tracking technology.  Follow this link to find out more.   

  7. And speaking of the latest technology, new to the Royal Commonwealth Pool gym, Boditrax is a quick, easy and accurate tool for measuring body metrics and it's free to use whenever you visit the gym at the Commie. Follow this link to find out more.

  8. When you first walk into Ainslie Park Leisure Centre and Gracemount Leisure Centre you'll see a big change. While we've been closed we've introduced Easy Access gates to these venues meaning you can simply use your RFID membership card to get through the gates to your activity.  If you've not yet got an RFID membership card we'll swap your card for one.  And we are getting in touch with all our coaching customers about picking up coaching fobs if they need to.
Please keep checking our website for all the latest information on our activities and venues.
