Encouraging sports and physical exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle is a key priority for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.
Our facilities are ideal for practicing sports, welcoming everyone to participate in Sports & Wellness programs, or to visit in their free time to get their personal training.
The SNFCC’s running track, including the outdoor gym, is open daily from 6am until midnight; admission is free for all. The outdoor games area hosts basketball, football, tennis and other sports. Around the SNFCC there is a 2.5km bike lane, while the SNFCC Canal accommodates kayaks and sailboats.
Each month’s activities invite participants to engage in sport while exploring various of the SNFCC's areas through specially designed programs for people of different ages, skills, with or without disabilities, and with different preferences and needs. From yoga to roller skating and from qigong to pétanque, there is something for everyone at the SNFCC.
In 2017, 18,027 children and 22,500 adults participated in sports and wellness programs organized at the SNFCC, taking full advantage of the outdoor exercise equipment, the running track and bike lane, the Canal and Stavros Niarchos Park. In addition, the SNF Running Team was formed, alongside many other informal visitors’ groups practicing daily at the SNFCC.
