About sport in the Netherlands
Sport is front of mind in the Netherlands. It is a sporting and active country. We have a large number of local sport clubs run by involved volunteers. Football, swimming and tennis are popular amongst many.
At the same time a vast number of adults and children cycle to work and school everyday which makes us a physical active country.

A society in which people are able to take part in sports and other physical activity in a proper, safe and enjoyable way, while also having fun.
We help find answers to questions about sport and physical activity, or to initiate research when there is no answer by developing practical step-by-step plans, computer models, guidelines and methodologies.
