Sports&Life Guttmann Club

A programme of sporting, cultural and social activities for everyone.

Aimed at former hospital patients, their families and friends, as well as any person with a neurological disability, regardless of their functional abilities, this initiative makes it possible to do sport and get involved in other social and cultural activities in a different environment to usual and in an inclusive way, contributing to the mood and health of participants. 

The activities, organised in partnership with other specialised organisations, are coordinated and supervised by the Institut Guttmann and are always accompanied and supervised by hospital staff. 

After the Sports&Life Guttmann Club programme stopped due to Covid-19, we have restarted it with a calendar full of scheduled activities for 2021.

Each activity will be considered individually taking into account the restrictions at the time, and bio-security regulations will always be respected.
