Sports

In order to participate in any organized sport in the Netherlands, you must belong to a relevant sport club. About a quarter of the people living here are registered to one of the 35,000 sports clubs. About two thirds of the population who are older than 15 years participate in sports weekly.

The most popular sport in the Netherlands is football (soccer), with field hockey and volleyball as the second and third most popular team sports. Tennis, gymnastics, and golf are the three most widely played individual sports.

For spectator sporting events, it is best to search online for the sport for the particular city.
