Sports in Greece

Hello everyone,

The Olympic Games are now just a few days away and we would like to talk about sports.

What sports are the most popular and/or unusual in Greece?

Are sports facilities easily accessible there? Where and how can one find sports clubs in the region?

Are there sports events regularly held in the country?

And you? What is your favourite sport? Which one(s) do you practice in Greece?

Thank you in advance,


Cricket is unlikely to be offered as one of Greece's major sports, but it used to be one of its very minor ones - and perhaps it still is; I don't know. I played several games on Corfu for the British Casuals team, when we lived in a camping ground there back in 1976. I wrote about it briefly for my blog a few years ago, while reminiscing about "the good old days". Here's the link: … e-for.html

Warning: the first half of the post is about my cricket in what is now Vanuatu; the Greek bit starts half way down.
