    There is plenty to do at Yell Leisure Centre, from badminton and basketball to snooker and swimming.

    Situated in Mid Yell in Shetland, this leisure centre boasts high standard facilities.

    In the three court main hall you can play badminton, football, basketball, carpet bowls and table tennis.

    You can watch these fun activities from the viewing gallery, with a snooker table and tea and coffee facilities.

    The fitness suite is home to a treadmill, bike, rowing machine, weights and a squash court, and the three lane 12.5 m swimming pool has a toddler’s lagoon.

    Wherever you go in Shetland you're never far from fitness and fun thanks to the Shetland Recreational Trust.

    There's nothing quite like the Shetland Recreational Trust anywhere else. Since 1985 the trust has built up an impressive network of eight leisure facilities within easy reach of the vast majority of Shetland's 22,000 population - and the thousands of visitors who are astonished at the quality and quantity of recreation facilities at the northern tip of Britain.

    The idea behind the Shetland Recreational Trust was to use some of Shetland's oil revenue to provide “facilities for whole communities to meet, socialise and play. They will be a major attraction for local residents and will be important facilities in the attraction of tourists”.

    Shetlanders and visitors alike have responded by flocking to the facilities. Usage levels are much higher than anyone expected - over 700,000 visits were recorded for the period 2010/2011 - proving just how exceptional these facilities are.
