European Week of Sport

From September 23 to 30, Matosinhos is once again associated with this project

The municipality of Matosinhos has prepared a set of activities for the European Week of Sport, which runs from September 23rd to 30th.

This is an initiative developed by the European Commission and coordinated in Portugal by the Portuguese Institute for Sport and Youth.

The goal is to promote sport and, inherently, physical activity among all citizens, regardless of age, gender, social background or level of physical fitness.

The main theme of the campaign is "#BeActive" and aims to encourage every citizen to be active not only during the European Week of Sport but throughout the year.

Education, workplaces, outdoor activities, activities at home, sports clubs and fitness centers are the main themes of the European Week of Sport.

In Matosinhos, as in previous years, Matosinhos Sport will provide, free of charge and with a focus on children and seniors, access to various services and facilities, such as admission to the weight-training room at the MS Fit Gym, to a swimming lesson at the Matosinhos municipal pool, to counseling at the Citizen's Physical Exercise Prescription Offices, or to workshops on exercise and nutrition.

At the same time, the actions of programs such as "Põe-te a Mexer" (fitness classes and inflatables for children) and "super classes" fitness +65 (water and land) of the municipal program "Active Matosinhos" will take place.

The program also includes sports events, including inclusive sports initiatives, such as adapted surfing (for people with disabilities) and surf for all (for children and young people from social solidarity institutions). With the exception of surfing (with registration already defined), all other activities are free and open to the population.
