Sports and exercise are healthy. They are especially important now that everyone is at home more because of the coronavirus. Sports coaches from Street sports are offering their activities outdoors or online. There is an E-sports tournament in the Centrum, Escamp, Laak and Loosduinen city districts every week. There is an online sports quiz, dancing on TikTok and online sports lessons and challenges. Look at the complete programme on the website of SWSDH (in Dutch).
