Problem statement: It is generally agreed that sports must be made available for children and young people. The children and youth of urban areas should be encouraged to form meaningful sporting activities under the guidance of sport teachers. Approach: Based on a study of the leisure activities of the Vienna children and young people through the city of Vienna, the ‘Sport and Fun' Halls was launched as a pilot project. Results: Following the successful implementation of the pilot project ‘Sport and Fun-Halls’, more locations and activities for the Vienna Youth have been anchored in sports policy. Conclusion/Recommendations: Given the safe and optimal training, leisure and exercise opportunities for children for children and young people, the expansion of other sports and recreational facilities in urban areas is recommended.
