What is it?

#SportHour is a chance to join us on Twitter and discuss the incredible sporting landscape in Scotland, including ways to get involved in sport, explore new opportunities and hear from the sporting community on a wide range of sporting topics.

When is it?

We will be LIVE with the next #SportHour at 9pm on Monday 6 May 2024.

The May theme will focus on moving for your mental health and the questions are as follows:

Q1. Tell us about the sport or physical activity that you feel helps your mental health and why?

Q2. What projects have you seen in your community that use sport or physical activity to support mental health?

Q3. What more can be done to continue to challenge stigma around mental health?

How does it work?

#SportHour is an informal LIVE Twitter conversation that we run from @sportscotland  which you can follow using the hashtag #SportHour. The aim is to discuss different aspects of sport in Scotland, to challenge, to share and to have a conversation where everyone can have their say.  

There’s a different theme for each #SportHour, which takes place four times a year. We will share the theme in advance and announce the questions and co-hosts in the week leading up to #SportHour. You can prepare your answers in advance if that works for you, then you can get involved in the LIVE conversation, liking, sharing and responding to what others are posting.

On the day itself, we will start about 8.45pm and the questions begin from 9pm. The questions will be asked every 20 minutes starting at 9pm.  

On the day, remember to include 'A1' in your answer for Q1 and so on for all three questions. And please remember to use #SportHour in all your posts so that everyone can see your contribution. 

An example is: 'A1 I recently joined the local hockey team, met some great friends, got fit & now I feel fantastic! #SportHour' 

To view others' responses, search #SportHour on Twitter and select 'latest tweets' (Latest #SportHour tweets) You can then engage with other people's answers by liking, retweeting, quote tweeting or replying.
