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 6 April 2020.

What is the theme this month?

The April 2020 theme will focus on physical activity to support mental health. Questions are listed below and will be promoted on Twitter @sportscotland.

This month we will only be publishing three questions instead of six to allow time for everyone to get their answers in as well as encourage more conversation.  

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'


  1. As a sporting community why is it important for us to stay connected to each other and what’s working best for you? (9pm-9.20pm) 
  2. Why is it important that physical activity continues to play an important role in our daily routines? Tell us about any good ideas you’ve seen or ideas you have? (9.20pm-9.40pm) 
  3. What are some of the things you’re doing to look after your mental health during these different times? (9.40pm-10pm)
