The UIA Sports & Leisure Working Programme Group actively promotes the universal development of sports and leisure facilities- from basic community sports halls to comprehensive complexes capable of hosting major international games.

The Group comprises specialist sports architects, drawn from every continent, whose mission is to inform developing countries of the socio-economic benefits of active sport for all ages and abilities.   It advocates the need for local and national policies and the importance of forward- planning programmes, sound brief-making and the appointment of experienced design teams for the achievement of attractive, functional and sustainable buildings.
