There are eight leisure centres dotted across the islands, with a range of sports equipment and facilities for hire, as well as regular fitness classes.

If you’re planning a trip to Shetland and want to keep on top of your fitness or need a plan for a rainy day, a visit to one of our leisure centres is a must.

The centres are located on the islands of Whalsay, Yell and Unst, as well as five on the mainland in Lerwick, Scalloway, South Mainland, West Mainland and North Mainland. All have swimming pools, with Lerwick’s Clickimin Centre – the biggest leisure facility – having a six-lane, 25 metre competition pool.

Other activities on offer include squash, badminton, gym facilities, health suites, fitness classes and multi-use indoor and outdoor courts for hire. Please check the Shetland Recreational Trust website for individual location facilities, opening times, prices and booking information.
