Sports in Zambia

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 Zambia?

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 Zambia?

Thank you in advance,


The only sport people care about is football, unfortunately! Im more into cycling because my legs don't do well kicking stuff around. :)

Sports facilities? well, there is OYDC (Olympic Youth Development Centre), but its so far away it would blow through your wallet in just a few trips to and fro, its one of those things that probably looked good on paper when they started planning it out.

Im now totally in love with cycling, but i play squash whenever i can and also badminton too, but Im no pro. Cheers :)
