The Hungarian Leisure Sport Association (HLSA) founded in 1989 is operating as public benefit organization in Budapest. Its main goal is to promote physical activity, to raise the population’s body culture to a higher level and to raise publicity of healthy lifestyle. The association organizes “Sport for All” events for all segments of the society.
As a national umbrella organization we have 30 member associations, more than 300 member clubs and further regional partners over Hungary supporting the efforts to make people active and healthy. The more than 30-year-old network reaches out to all Hungarian counties, the capital and 6 towns with county-right.
Beside our regular coordinational activities we organize leisure sport events such as Challenge Day, Family Sport Festival, Senior Sport Festival, World Walking Day etc. while we also support the Hungarian nordic walking community. Since 2015 we also manage the national coordination of the European Week of Sport
Our international activity is growing: we are an active member of TAFISA and we also take part in inspiring European grassroots sport programs.
