Take the chance to tell us about your website visit today. This will help us make our website more efficient and only takes a few moments.

This is where we will be posting any updates related to COVID-19 and our venues.

Following the First Minister’s most recent announcement on Tuesday, 1 June, halting the move from level 2 into level 1 for Edinburgh and Midlothian it is with regret that we will have to delay the planned 7th June reopening of our three soft plays: Scrambles at the EICA; Clambers at the Royal Commonwealth Pool and Tumbles at Portobello.


This also means that we have also had to halt the bookings going live for the re-opening of AquaDash, which was due to reopen on Saturday, 26 June. 

While this news is disappointing for all our soft play customers and their parents and carers, Scottish Government did stress that this is a pause and not a step backwards. As soon as we have further news on indicative dates when Edinburgh and Midlothian might move to level 1, and when we can reopen our bookings for soft play and AquaDash, we will update our website and social media channels.  

For now the following services are open at Edinburgh Leisure:

  • Edinburgh Leisure’s venues re-opened for individual exercise on the 26th of April, including gyms, swimming pools, indoor court hire, racquet sports and children's coaching. Adult outdoor contact sports and indoor group exercises was able to resume on Monday 17th May.
  • Our golf courses remain open (weather permitting). Four-balls are now permitted and from 16th April, you have been able to travel anywhere in Scotland for the purpose of recreation or exercise. 
  • Our outdoor tennis courts remain open (weather permitting). You can read the latest guidelines from Tennis Scotland here. From the 5th of April, contact sports resumed for 12-17-year-olds.
  • From the 19th of April, community access to high school sports facilities restarted with access to outdoor pitches. We will continue live-streaming fitness classes, with membership and pay-as-you-go options available. Find out more here.
