Sports in Swaziland

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 Swaziland?

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 Swaziland?

Thank you in advance,


Yes, Swaziland is sending two representatives for track to the Olympics

A lot more of the sports here are played at a semi-professional level and therefore it is difficult to take up sports as a full time career here.

Soccer, and Volleyball are arguably the most popular sports in Swaziland. We do also play netball, golf, combat sports like boxing etc.

My personal favourite is Basketball. I would have loved to be involved in a managerial role in basketball. I believe my playing window for a chance at professional level has slammed shut.
