Is sport less self-evident for you? This is what Utrecht offers!

Appropriate sports offer
Many sports clubs in Utrecht offer tailor-made services for different needs. For example, think of:

  • Sports and exercise activities for refugees/status holders and their guidance: JongGras Sportsbuddies | Academics of the City
  • Sports for a Future of the Salvation Army for vulnerable groups
  • Sports and exercise activities combined with a coffee moment for the elderly; and
  • Adapted sports for people with disabilities. Are you looking for a suitable offer? Please contact the exercise broker of Sport Utrecht in your neighborhood or go to Sportstad-Utrecht.nl to get an overview of the sports they offer. 

In Utrecht we think it is important that everyone can exercise and move. Unfortunately, that is not obvious to everyone. That is why we are happy to host the European Life Goals Games in Utrecht. In addition, Utrecht offers the following options to make sports and exercise more accessible to everyone.
