Thus, participants will be able to participate in Piloxing Knockout or in bobbycar races in Koerich. In Lultzhausen, you take to the water in a canoe, kayak or sailboat. Dance Salsa or exert yourself in Darts in Steinfort! A Mondercange the town square will host a range of activities from archery to Inownhill and Karate. In Grevenmacher, the Sports and Cultural Centre will host a range of activities, from Taekwondo, through Happy Tennis and Zumba to soccer.
Registration Not necessary!
Participation at the Night of Sports is free and requires no prior registration, except for certain activities requiring special supervision (e.g. triathlon). Apart from clothing adapted to the physical activities (light clothing, trainers, swimsuit, ...) participants do not need any special equipment.
In every participating municipality, the Night of Sports takes place in central venues, which feature different activities. For details about the activities, schedules and entertainment, please visit www.nuitdusport.lu.
