Mayo is challenged to be active this Sunday, 28th June as part of the Sport Ireland National BeActive Day.

Mayo Sports Partnership is one of 29 Local Sports Partnerships in the country who are coming together to celebrate a day of physical activity and sport and want you to join in and be active.

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Mayo Sports Partnership has been working hard to ensure the people of Mayo remain physically active.

As part of a national network of 29 Local Sports Partnerships (LSP) Mayo Sports Partnership has adapted by using online resources, printed booklets and other innovative means, to ensure that everyone in their community has the opportunity to share in the enjoyment as well as the mental and physical health benefits of sport and physical activity.

International guidelines recommend children are active for at least 60 minutes a day and adults for 30 minutes a day, National BeActive Day is a fun and inclusive way of getting in your daily physical activity.

The Local Sports Partnerships have developed a printable list of games and activities to give you some inspiration, all of which are fully adaptive for people of all abilities and skill levels.

With suggestions to make the games harder or easier, there is a game for everyone. Simply print out the games or display them on your phone and be active.  Or why not get creative and create your own games, activities or challenges?

Mayo Sports Partnership are running a competition for the most creative National BeActive Day activity in the county so make sure to share a photo or video on social media and tag in @SportIreland and  @mayosport1  and the hashtag #NationalBeActiveDay to be in with a chance of winning a €50 Elvery Sports voucher!

If you are not on social media, you can email a photo or video of your activity to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  to be in with a chance of winning a prize!
