Edinburgh Sport Clubs Facility Consultation

The Council recently approved the principle of Edinburgh Leisure managing school sports facilities on behalf of the Council. Edinburgh Leisure are now preparing a delivery model by January 2016.

It is crucial that our clubs in Edinburgh have the chance to present their veiws on a change in the management of schools. ClubSportEdinburgh is the voluntary local Sports Council for Edinburgh and represents a voice for sports clubs in the city. In order to have a strong, collective voice regarding the proposals we need your views! 

Please complete this survey regarding your experiences of using any sport venues in Edinburgh (schools, leisure centres, etc) and return it to by Monday 30th November

Information provided will be used in a report to Edinburgh Leisure which will help shape their proposals in order to ensure that clubs views are fully taken into account. 

If your club use more than 1 venue, please complete the 'Additional Venue Form'.

In addition to the survey, we are hosting a series of open forums to discuss the proposals and feedback from the surveys.  Again, these will provide extra detail for reporting to Edinburgh Leisure.  The forums will be available to any sport club in Edinburgh on the following dates:

  • Monday 30th November, 6.30pm – 8.30pm, Meadowbank Sports Centre (Hall 6) – Dryside forum
  • Wednesday 2nd December, 6.30pm – 8.30pm, The Royal Commonwealth Pool – Wetside forum
  • Thursday 10th December, 6.30pm – 8.30pm, Meggetland Sports Complex – Pitches forum

These forums will be crucial if you want your views heard by Edinburgh Leisure and the City of Edinburgh Council.  They have been arranged to allow for targetted discussion for 3 facility groups (dryside, wetside and pitches).  Your club can attend any forum to have your voice heard, but it would be most beneficial to attend the one relating to your facility type.

Please contact us at if you will be attending one of the forums.
