The best way to relieve the stress of living in a large metropolis is by taking part in sports. It can improve your health as well. The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has many different kinds of leisure facilities available to you, such as sports centres, fitness rooms, swimming pools, archery ranges, rope courses and more. Perhaps you can discover your potential in many types of sports.
You can use the Leisure Link to make online bookings for most of the facilities and enrol in activities that you want to join. When you register as an LCSD patron, you will get more personalised services such as a personalised e-magazine delivered to you.
On the other hand, if you are aiming to challenge your physical and mental fitness, then training at Outward Bound School, an outdoor experiential education designed by a distinguished German educator, is perfect for you. It will be a challenge you will surely enjoy.
On top of exercising, you may also want to go outdoors for some fresh air. There are plenty of nicely designed parks, zoos and gardens in every district for you to visit, free of charge.
Hong Kong has a lot to be proud of when it comes to its athletes. Besides the tremendous efforts of the athletes themselves, the support from the Hong Kong Sports Institute is also something to celebrate. With the 2010 Asian Games coming soon, the Hong Kong Sports Institute and the Sports Federation Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China are working hard to give our athletes the best support, with an aim to further promote sports development in Hong Kong.
