Meadowbank Sports Centre was the first Commonwealth venue to host two Commonwealth Games, in 1970 and 1986. It has a spectacular history of medal winners who have raced on the outdoor 400 metre eight lane track – Mary Peters, Lord Coe, Daley Thompson, Linford Christie, Dame Kelly Holmes.

After a run of almost 50 years, Meadowbank Stadium will shut its doors on 3rd December 2017. The closure of the flagship venue, which was built for the 1970 Commonwealth Games, will mark the start of major redevelopment plans to create a new state-of-the-art sports centre on the same site.

The new centre will include an outdoor athletics track, multi-sport games, fitness studios, gym,  gymnastics hall, squash courts, combat studio, boxing gym, indoor athletics track, outdoor throwing area and Two FIFA standard 3G (all weather) pitches.

We'll have more information as we approach the closure but some additional details can be found here.



As you may already know (see above!) Meadowbank is closing for redevelopment on Sunday 3rd December. We have been working on relocating as many of our fitness classes as possible to the venues that are closest to Meadowbank. These venues include Leith Victoria, Jack Kane Sports Centre, Portobello Swim Centre and the Royal Commonwealth Pool
