Sporta is the national association of leisure and cultural trusts. Sporta members operate a wide range of leisure and cultural services in communities across the UK - from the Shetland Isles to Cornwall and from the Western Highlands to Kent. Together they provide 30% of public leisure centres in the UK – with over 1600 facilities, they have a combined turnover of more than £1billion and they employ around 50,000 staff.

Sporta is governed by an Executive of ten Chief Executives or Managing Directors and holds three General Member meetings each year. With two small offices – in London and Edinburgh - we provide policy intelligence, business services and trust development support for our members. Most of our work is done through networks and groups of members.

Sporta membership is open to non-profit distributing organisations, primarily but not exclusively those that manage cultural and leisure facilities.

There are over 100 Sporta trusts HQs around the UK. Find your nearest one.

  • Sporta's October General Meeting


    Our October GM featured Hannah White on adventuring, Livewire on Warrington's Rugby League World Cup, Tara Dillon on the new CIMSPA and Members dicussing the current campaigns and challenges.
    At our GM on 1 October Hannah White talked about her life as an adventurer​ and her mission to inspire people to enjoy sport and physical activity. Keith Maddock from Warrington Livewire told the story and showed a video about how Warrington hosted the Rugby League World Cup 2013, and Tara Dillon spoke emphatically and passionately about how CIMSPA could at last be the Chartered Institute we can all be proud of, if members can join up. After lunch Members had reports from David Ferguson and Sir John Elvidge on the current Scottish campaign and how post-referendum Scotland is going to affect the rest of the UK; we finished with discussions on the next phases of Sporta's programmes for procurement and development (including asset transfer, charitable funding) and public health.


  • October General Meeting

    Sporta's next General Meeting will be held at the MacDonald Burlington Hotel, Birmingham on 1st October 2014. Hannah White and Tara Dillon will be guest speakers at the morning session. Further information about the full programme will be available soon.
