The 2021 European Week of Sport
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
SBI would like to thank Jim Carrick and everyone at the Newbridge CYMS for holding the successful cue zone on the day. Finally well done to all the players who attended the session with PJ.
