Sport Aberdeen

Who We Are and What We Do

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, we are proud to manage and deliver physical activity and sport services on behalf of Aberdeen City Council and a number of other partners.       

We believe that sport and being active can change lives.

We believe that opportunities to participate should be available to everyone.

The foundations of Sport Aberdeen are built upon the clear premise of getting more people active, regardless of age, gender or ability. Strategically forged partnerships with public and private sector bodies help to ensure a community focus is at the forefront of everything we do. 

What makes Sport Aberdeen different from many other sport and leisure providers is that fact that every penny is reinvested back into the communities we serve. With over 500 employees, 34 venues and two million customer visits each year, Sport Aberdeen is the largest sport and leisure provider in the north-east.

Our goal is simple – we want to get more people active and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to take part in some form of physical activity.
