European Week of Sport
European Week of Sport, coordinated nationally by Sport Ireland, 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 great distances. 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 can lead to:
- An increase in health benefits
- Better mental health
- Feeling great
- Increase in productivity
European Week of Sport takes place during the last week in September every year, with Mayo Sports Partnership coordinating several local events.
