More than 1,000 schools have no outdoor sports facilities, according to Scottish Labour.
It claimed the figures provided to it by SportScotland show not enough is being invested by the Scottish government.
A total of 1,040 schools were recorded as having no outdoor facilities.
The Scottish government said £168m has been channelled through SportScotland since 2007 to support councils and sports groups.
The schools without outdoor facilities included four in ten primary schools and three-quarters of schools for those with additional support needs.
Labour education spokesman Daniel Johnson said: “Having access to outdoor sports facilities isn’t just about finding the next Andy Murray, it’s about cutting the attainment gap with healthier children more likely to do well in the classroom.
“We also know that Scotland has made almost no progress in tackling childhood obesity in the last ten years. Access to outdoor sports facilities should be part of the solution.
“These figures show that the SNP government hasn’t been giving our schools the investment they need to deliver investment in the estate. The SNP should reverse the ten years of cuts it has made to Scotland’s schools.”
