Sport and active recreation
Sport and physical activity are vital in promoting health and making people feel good about themselves and as a nation.
Sport and physical activity can bring people together, binding and regenerating communities.
The Welsh Government aims to:
- through Sport Wales, widen participation in sport and programmes targeted at increasing physical activity
- increase the number of sport coaches and elite athletes in Wales
- work with national, UK and international sports federations to ensure that more major sporting events are held in Wales in the future
- work with Cardiff County Council to look at the feasibility of bidding to host the 2026 Commonwealth Games
- extend our free swimming scheme to veterans and serving armed forces personnel on leave.
Its vision is to 'Unite a proud sporting nation, where every child is hooked on sport for life and where Wales is a nation of champions'.
