The gyms, fitness classes, tennis and badminton courts and lane swimming in these centres will be available when they first reopen.

In a statement on their website, Edinburgh Leisure said: "We’re delighted at the prospect of welcoming you back and all our efforts are focused on making our venues as safe as possible.

"We want to reopen our venues and services as quickly as possible and this will happen on an incremental basis.

“Public leisure services, many charities and businesses throughout the country are faced with significant financial challenges due to lost income during lockdown and the prospect of operating at reduced capacity to comply with physical distancing measures, and it’s the same for Edinburgh Leisure.

“However, the Edinburgh Leisure team have never shied away from a challenge and we are still committed to supporting and enabling the citizens of Edinburgh to live active and healthy lives.”

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced that gyms and swimming pools were allowed to open from August 31 with strict coronavirus guidelines in place from the Scottish Government and Sportscotland.
