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 July 2022

The July theme will focus on Sport for all ages #SportForLife

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 each month which we share in advance and we 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 start about 8.45pm and the questions begin from 9pm. The questions will be asked every 20 minutes starting at 9pm.  

On the night, 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.


9pm Q1. What examples have you seen where young children are enjoying positive early experiences of sport and physical activity? 

9.20pm Q2. What more could be done to help prevent adults becoming inactive in later life?

9.40pm Q3. Share your examples of people getting active at all ages!
