Meadowbank Sports Centre

Be part of new history in the making. The original Meadowbank Sports Centre was at the heart of sport and physical activity for almost 50 years until it closed in 2017.

It hosted two Commonwealth Games along the way in 1970 and 1986 – the first venue to host the Games twice - as well as hosting many different types of other sporting and large-scale music events, the last one being Elton John in 2016. 

Meadowbank has always been at the heart of the local community and its commitment to the health and well-being of the city has never changed. 

We look forward to reopening this iconic sporting venue and the finishing line of this multi-million-pound redevelopment is almost in sight.

Joining the Biggest Club in Town has never been easier. With our new system you can join Edinburgh Leisure with a membership option that suits you.
