Building a network to strengthen European traditional sports and games


On 27th of June 2014 in Catalonia -in the small village: Hospitalet de l'Infant- the 14th annual ETSGA (European Traditional Sports and Games Association) meeting occured. Our chairmen Guido Van Alsenoy was present for VlaS and coordinator Hein Comeyne elucidated the European project: 'SETS'(Strengthening European Traditional Sports). The meeting lasted four hours, thereafter the attendeed could try out thirteen different ways of skittles, played with 6-pins. These traditional skittle games are original from different regions in Spain and France.  

The meeting passed smoothly and there was a good atmosphere. The SETS-presentation impressed the audience with the already obtained results : a website ( with more than 80 traditional sports and games out of North- and East-Europe. Furthermore, under each picture in our photo-gallery you can find a link to the related organization.  In total, more than 200 organizations are already contacted. 

A collaboration with other European projects about traditional sports and games is in prospect.
