European Week Of Sport


The 2019 European Week of Sport and Physical Activity will be celebrated across Ireland from 23rd-30th September 2019.

European Week of Sport aims to promote sport and physical activity across Europe. The week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. With a focus on grassroots initiatives, the aim is to inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and create opportunities in peoples’ everyday lives to exercise more.

Being Active doesn’t mean having to be part of a sports club, a gym, running marathons or cycling across Europe. Being Active can be running around playing with your children, grabbing a walk with work colleagues on your lunch break, going outside and exploring the great outdoors - whatever gets you moving to lead a healthier and more active lifestyle.

Being Active leads to;

  • An increase in health benefits
  • Better mental health
  • Feeling great
  • Confidence
  • Increase in productivity

A list of activities will be available on here from the end of July so keep an eye out how you can get involved in the #BeActive movement
