Shotts Leisure Centre Revised Opening Hours

NLL Latest News


As you may be aware, NLL faces financial pressure due to the increasingly difficult marketplace that it finds itself operating within. This, coupled with a reduction in management fee made available from NLC has found the organisation dealing with unprecedented financial pressures. The last 3 years have seen NLL make over £7million in efficiency savings, a figure which represents 55% of the overall efficiency savings that the organisation has had to make since 2006. The 2019/20 budget has also seen a further reduction in the management fee that NL Leisure receives and given current pressures on the public sector, it is likely that in the future there will be further reductions.

It is imperative that NLL continues to explore ways in which we can mitigate these pressures to ensure the future financial sustainability of the organisation.



From May 2019 Shotts Leisure Centre will face a reduction in the current venue opening hours. There will also be a reduction to the operating hours of the swimming pool within the venue.

Currently, Shotts Leisure Centre is open for 90.75 hours per week, from May 2019 this will be reduced to 74.75 hours per week.

To summarise, the venue, swimming pool and health suite will continue to be opened 7 days per week to the public. NLL has thoroughly researched peak usage at the venue, and as such, has tailored the opening hours to demand as to minimise the impact on members. The new opening hours can be found below:



The new opening hours for the venue (including gym, main hall and health suite) are as follows:

  • Monday – Friday: 8.30am – 9pm
  • Saturday: 9am – 4pm
  • Sunday: 9am – 4pm

The new opening hours for the swimming pool within the venue are as follows:

  • Monday – Friday: 9am – 12pm & 4pm – 8pm
  • Saturday: 9am – 4pm
  • Sunday: 9am – 4pm



NLL understands that the reduction in opening hours will have an impact on those who use Shotts Leisure Centre, however this decision has been necessary due to the increasingly difficult financial situation that the organisation is operating in.
