Time left until the start of the population and housing census


The number of people involved in sports and their share in the population is growing continuously. Everyone can find a sport or physical activity that they enjoy, whether it is jogging in forest, exercise class in a sports club, ballgame or lifting weights in the gym.

Estonia has set a target that, by 2030, at least two-thirds of the population should be physically active and involved in sports. A healthy lifestyle adds healthy life years and increases life expectancy.

Sports statistics include the following information:

  • how many amateur athletes there are in Estonia;
  • what is the profile of an amateur athlete;
  • which sports are most popular;
  • how many persons study in sports schools;
  • how many amateur athletes practice Olympic sports;
  • how many sports instructors there are;
  • how many sports organisations, clubs and schools operate in Estonia.

Sports statistics help to analyse people’s physical activity level and sports preferences as well as evaluate how many people will become involved in one or another sport in the future.

Persons aged 15 and over who were physically active in the previous 12 months 60.5 %
Amateurs in sports organisations 177,436
Amateurs in sports organisations by sex and age group
Spordiorganisatsioonides spordiharrastajad maakonna järgi
