Taking place every year from 23-30 September, European Week of Sport helps millions of people across Europe build better, healthier lifestyles.
In 2019 an estimated 110,196 people took part in over 800 events in Ireland. Sport Ireland, the National Co-ordinating Body for European Week of Sport in Ireland hope that this year’s event will be even bigger with the help of funded partners, Local Sports Partnerships and local clubs and organisations encouraging as many people as possible to be active.
During the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, we saw unprecedented numbers of people in Ireland turn to recreational sport and physical activity to maintain a health body and mind. European Week of Sport hopes to build on this, encouraging even more people to be active, regardless of age, ability or fitness levels. There is a sport or activity for everyone, it is just a matter of discovering it.
Leitrim Sports Partnership will be delivering a number of initiatives during the European Week of Sports and we are encouraging our clubs and community groups to do so too!
