Sports Activities

Living in Cayman gives residents the opportunity to explore a wide variety of sports at all levels. The year round warm weather and generally shorter working hours, when compared to big cities, means that after work training and games are a way of life.

Sport groups and teams are also a wonderful way of making new friends and invariably have vibrant social scenes attached to them.

Those who prefer to work out alone will find numerous high quality gyms with great equipment and a variety of classes.

There are also plenty of sporting events such as the Flowers Sea Swim, Cayman Islands Marathon and the CI Triathlon, which bring the whole community together and are great fun.

Keep an eye on the Events Calendar on www.explorecayman.com for details on sporting events throughout the year.

For those wanting information on squash, tennis and badminton please see our Racquet Sports page.
