Ball Sports

Due to COVID-19, our venues and coaching programmes are closed until further notice. If you have a direct debit with us, this has been frozen until we reopen. You do not need to do anything. Please check our website for reopening details and stay active at home with us with free workouts from Les Mills and Life Fitness, alongside custom-made activities and challenges for all ages.

We welcome a variety of team sports on a regular slot or for an occasional game at our indoor and outdoor courts, pitches and halls which are available for hire to clubs and groups. With indoor and all-weather courts and sports pitches at our venues across the city, bad weather is no excuse!

Basketball

From shooting to dribbling, lay ups to free throws: there’s plenty of fun to be had on the court. This fast-paced game is a great way to hone skill and accuracy

Cricket

Pitches are available from April to August. Contact school&pitchbookings@edinburghleisure.co.uk for more information. 

Rugby

Grass pitches are available in 9 locations across the city.

Contact school&pitchbookings@edinburghleisure.co.uk for more information.



Hockey

The Olympic game of hockey with curved sticks and short corners is a great fun activity for a one off game, regular fixture or for team training on the pitch or indoors.

Netball

Perfect pivots and speedy chest passes are just part of this fast-paced ball game which is a great way to be active and socialise at the same time.

Volleyball

Serve, pass, set, attack, block and dig in this fun athletic team sport that’ll have you burning up the calories at our indoor courts.



 We have outdoor pitches throughout Edinburgh in both grass and astroturf for 5, 7 and 11-a-side and some venues with floodlighting so you can play outdoors all year round. 

Prefer to play indoors? Our halls are set up with goals and very popular for smaller groups of 5s with faster play and more chance for a touch of the ball - hire a hall for some lunchtime dribbling or a get together with friends.
