During the past weekend, two big activities took place as part of the European Week of Sport 2022.
On Saturday, the BeActive Night took place at the Cottonera Sport Complex, an activity which at the same time was being celebrated within the whole European Union member states and other countries in Europe.
The event had two main themes: inclusivity, and fitness.
In fact, Special Olympics were the centre of various activities that were not only carried out by their young members but also by others. The sports of bocce, table tennis and football were the most popular.
There were also walks from different Local Councils to the complex. In fact, the councils of Kalkara, Senglea, Vittoriosa and Cospicua, with the collaboration of SportMalta organized three-kilometre walks for which the locals attended.
In addition, there was a great fitness activity that had a line-up of different sports including zumba, boogie bounce and capoeira together with exhibitions from various dance schools.
A snooker exhibition tournament was also organised by very young children who are part of the SportMalta academy.
Then on Sunday, the Marsa Complex was transformed into a sports village.
It was a fun activity for all those who attended to watch and take part in a different sport.
This event included a variety of disciplines, from athletics, skateboarding, basketball 3×3, duathlon, badminton, archery, netball, judo, rugby, kendo, and volleyball.
Special Olympics also organised various sports for their member children, while the Youth Football Association organised a football tournament throughout the day for both boys and girls.
In the next few weeks, several other activities are being carried out by various federations and clubs to encourage the Maltese and Gozitan population to be more active.
The next official activity for SportMalta is a 5km run organised together with the Malta Employees Sport Association which will take place on October 6 at 5pm. In the second week of October a collective event will be held in schools.
