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 Health Conference and GM, Birmingham

    Members, guests and friends of Sporta gathered this week in Birmingham for the Sporta Health Conference.
    Held at Leisure Industry Week, the educational event featured presentations from Public Health
    England into the challenges being faced in terms of obesity and inactivity, insight from The
    Richmond Group and Britain Thinks about engaging older adults with long term conditions, and the
    ASA about their successful dementia friendly swimming programme. There were also a number of
    examples from Sporta trusts who shared learning on a wide range of innovative programmes and
    initiatives delivering health services.
    The following day saw attendees assemble for the September General Meeting. Again, members
    heard from a number of fellow trusts around the theme of managing challenging issues and
    situations. Kirklees Active, Magna Vitae and Northampton Leisure Trust all shared their lessons and
    insight from dealing with difficult circumstances in their centres, and how they have made suitable
    adaptations to overcome these. The meeting also featured feedback and reflections from three
    members of trust staff (Live Borders, Falkirk Community Trust, and Your Leisure) who were
    supported by the association to attend the ukactive Future Leaders Programme in Barcelona. In the
    closed session, members had the chance to discuss priorities, challenges and priorities for the
    Sporta would like to thank all trusts, sponsors and speakers who attended and contributed to the
    conference and General Meeting. The next General Meeting is planned to take place in February in
    Minutes and slides from all presentations are available in the members area of the website.
