Sports in rural areas

The guided sports groups offered in the rural areas of the City of Kuopio are intended for senior citizens and those with long-term illnesses.
There are gym groups as well as lighter water exercise and chair workout groups available.

The groups are guided by the sports instructors of the City of Kuopio.

There are two ways to enrol for sports groups:

  1. Electronically at
  2. Enrolment by phone, call the sports instructors at +358 44 718 4932 or +358 44 748 8228

If the groups have already started for the season, you can ask the instructors if you can still join the group. Residents participate in the sports groups organised by the City at their own risk. We recommend taking out accident insurance. The groups are open to everyone, and membership of any organisation is not required.

Season fee: EUR 30 per person per group, 13 sessions.

Short courses: EUR 20 per person per group, 5 sessions. For water exercise groups, the swimming pool fee must be paid.

The City of Kuopio reserves the right to price amendments in its course offering.
