We believe that everyone is entitled to access quality provision of sport and activity opportunities.


We believe that sport and being active can change lives.

Sport Aberdeen is an award winning registered charity committed to creating opportunities, inspiring people and changing lives through sport and physical activity. Established in 2010, the organisation manages sport and physical activity services on behalf of Aberdeen City Council.        

What makes Sport Aberdeen different from many other sports and leisure providers is that fact that every penny is reinvested back into the communities that it serves. With over 600 employees, 34 venues and 2 million customer visits each year, Sport Aberdeen is the largest sport and leisure provider in the North East.

The foundations of Sport Aberdeen were built upon the simple goal of getting more people active within the Granite City, regardless of age, gender or ability. Strategically forged partnerships with public and private sector bodies help to ensure a community focused stance is at the forefront of the registered charity.
