No matter what time of day you are in The Hague, there is always a sport going on somewhere. This ranges from runners jogging around the 111,000 hectares of dune areas, parks and country estates to people sweating bouldering in a climbing hall. The Hague has more than enough space for the sports enthusiast who likes to walk, cycle or even go longboarding. There are also plenty of sporting events such as the famous NN City-Pier-City Run.
At the The Hague Beach Stadium at Scheveningen, every sports enthusiast can get their fill! Beach volleyball, beachtennis, beach sports for seniors, sea swimming and so on. This stadium often hosts international sporting events as well.
Whether you want to learn windsurfing, wave surfing or kitesurfing, The Hague is the only Dutch city where you will find so many surf schools together. In Scheveningen and at Zuiderstrand, there is plenty of choice during the beach season, and there are also many activities and lessons for children!
Scheveningen is a real 'surfers' paradise'. Kiting, wave surfing or windsurfing happens mainly on the north side of Scheveningen harbour. Between the harbour and the lighthouse is the hotspot for surfers and there are also several surf schools such as Aloha Surfschool and Hartbeach where you can take lessons.
You can also find three coastal sailing clubs along the Hague coast beach: KZVS at Zwarte Pad, HKZV at beach junction 10 Westduinpark and Sailcenter 107 between beach junctions 2 and 2a south of Kijkduin. Read more information on how to reach the different beaches.
