We’re delighted to welcome Balerno High School on board as our newest venue.  Situated in the Southwest of Edinburgh, it has been serving the local community for almost 40 years and we’re delighted to be taking this one step further.

While we’re only open for public access outside of school hours, we're offering badminton court hire and Men’s fitness classes in the sports hall. 

The 25 metre Swimming Pool is open to Lane Swimming, Family Swim and Swim Coaching

There's more changes coming to our lane and casual swim sessions. From 15th August:

  • you won't have to book for any casual or lane swims, simply drop in
  • you won't be restricted to an hour in the pool (dependant on pool opening hours)
  • families can drop in for a Family Casual Swim
You can still book into a Family Fun Session or a Relaxed Swim Session as normal - here's a link to where you'll be able to see our adult/child ratios and all the sessions you can enjoy in our pools.

You can book an activity at Balerno online or via our mobile app for Android or iOS by creating or logging in to your booking account.
