Sports and exercise are important contributors to health and personal development. Amsterdam offers countless opportunities for people to engage in sports, organised by various clubs and organisations throughout the city. The City has a role in disseminating information about the range of sports opportunities and sports facilities available. We want to let people know what’s out there, and encourage them to take part.
At present, both residents and professionals lack a clear overview of the sports offer and infrastructure in Amsterdam. The relevant information is spread across various locations, at the local government level but also at sports providers. As a result, many residents do not receive the information in time or at all, and so do not get exposure to the places where they might be motivated to engage in sports. This makes getting involved in sport and becoming physically active even harder.
We often get questions/comments like:
Due to a lack of overview of the activities and sports facilities on offer, these questions often send us off on a quest for answers ourselves.
