European Diving Championships 2018

We're delighted to be hosting the European Diving Championships 2018 at the Royal Commonwealth Pool this summer.  However, this does mean that access to the building will be affected.


Important dates:

  • 21st - 27th July - The diving pool will be closed and there will be no public swimming in the main pool, although we will be running Aquadash sessions during this time.  All other facilities will remain open as normal, however, our car park will be closed so please factor in additional time if travelling by car.
  • 28th July - 16th August - The building and car park are completely closed to all customers.
  • 17th August - The venue is fully open as normal.


You can keep active during this time at any of our other gyms, swimming pools and fitness classes across the city.  Please find your nearest alternative venue here.


We are working hard to relocate as many of our fitness classes as we can to other Edinburgh Leisure sites so that you can hopefully enjoy your favourite classes during this time.  We’ll update you shortly with an alternative fitness class timetable, please keep an eye on this page.


Our coaching will start slightly later after the school summer holidays, on Friday 17th August.  If your coaching class was due to start prior to Friday 17th August your Direct Debit will be amended to take into account the later start to the term.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  Please keep an eye on this page for more information or speak to a member of our reception team who will be happy to help.
