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.
