There are a range of sporting activities and hobby clubs enjoyed in the Islands, with the well-equipped sports centre in Stanley providing a good indoor venue.
Swimming, indoor tennis, full-bore target shooting, cricket, running, archery, football and darts are popular sports. Bridge, amateur dramatics, scouts and guides are all represented too. In addition, there are several golf courses in Camp and an 18-hole course in Stanley.
Stanley Harbour provides a base for some sailing, windsurfing, jet-skiing and canoeing activities and there are a number of wreck dives available for underwater enthusiasts.
Other outdoor activities include walking, riding, motocross and fishing. The Islands are an excellent location for artists and photographers too, as they benefit from clear light, abundant wildlife (amongst other subjects), open scenery and big skies.
Popular dates in the calendar are the annual horse-racing meet at Christmas, and Sports Week, traditionally held at the end of the shearing season.
