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.

  • New Sporta Members

    Sporta has recently welcomed three new members; Jedburgh Leisure Facilities Trust, Magna Vitae and The Pelican Centre

  • What have we learnt so far - Make Your Move:

    The Make Your Move website 'impact' page has been redesigned and is now live containing some of the learning from the programme so far. Learning includes project case studies, participant story films, infographics, independent evaluation from BDRC Continental, with more to come. Make Your Move seeks to fund sporta member trusts to recruit inactive people into physical activity and/or sport. Further evidence and evaluation will also be shared at the sporta AGM in May with members. Please do visit the Make Your Move website to find out more about the £2.1m programme.
