To further promote "Sport for All" and to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will organise "Sport For All Day 2012" on 5 August 2012. On that day, a series of free recreation and sports programmes will be organised to encourage people of different ages to regularly take part in sports and other physical activities. Moreover, most of the fee-charging recreation and sports facilities will be open for free use by members of the public.
The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will be held in London from July to September. To support the London Olympics and encourage the participating Hong Kong athletes to strive for excellence in the Games, the Olympics will be adopted as the theme of Sport For All Day 2012. Each of the 18 District Leisure Services Offices of the LCSD will choose an Olympic event as its signature promotion sport on that day for creating a strong Olympic atmosphere in the community.
