The 2019 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
RIBSA would like to thank all the players for attending the Cue Zone and we hope everyone enjoyed the day.
