Clickimin Leisure Centre
Clickimin Leisure Centre in Lerwick is the main leisure facility in Shetland managed by Shetland Recreational Trust.
Since the centre opened its doors in 1985, it has proven to be a major attraction to both locals and tourists alike. In July 1996, Phase 2 of the complex was completed with the opening of a bowls hall and pools complex. In addition to a multi-purpose sports hall (1,000 square metres), fitness suite, sauna and solarium, multi-use studio, shooting gallery, football, hockey and rugby pitches and an all-weather athletics track, the complex now has a four-rink indoor bowls hall, leisure pools and a 6-lane 25m swimming pool with floating floor.
In 2001 a new fitness suite, Apex, was created to cater for increased demand, with the latest equipment and personal trainers available.
Further upgrades of the facilities took place prior to Shetland hosting the Island Games in 2005. The main addition at this time was the £1.2M squash complex, which has movable partitions to allow either 3 single or 2 double courts to be used. Although the squash complex was in use from 2005, the facility was only completed in 2007 when changing rooms, offices, and spectator seating were added. It was officially opened on 28th July 2007 by Jamie Macaulay, a Scottish squash player, born in Shetland.
The centre houses the Horizons Cafe, the first completely "no smoking" establishment of its kind in Shetland, long before the general smoking ban came into force.
