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 from 9-10pm on Monday 4 November 2019.

What is the theme this month?

The November 2019 theme is local heroes. Questions will be listed below and will be promoted on Twitter @sportscotland.

How does it work?

It's a Twitter chat we run from our sportscotland Twitter account, which you can follow using the hashtag #SportHour. The aim is to discuss different aspects of sport in Scotland and to get together as one sporting community.

Each month we have a theme which we tell you at the end of the previous #SportHour. We announce the questions and co-hosts in the week leading up to #SportHour.

We let you know the questions in advance so that you can plan your answers. On the day itself, we start about 8.45pm and the questions begin from 9pm.

The questions will be asked, one every 10 minutes from 9pm. Remember to include 'A1' in your answer for Q1 and so on for all six questions. Tag your answer with #SportHour 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'
