Visiting Texel with your sports club

Texel is an island that inspires you to be active. Its beaches, woods and hiking, cycling and mountain-bike trails form the ideal setting for all kinds of sports activities. But there are also great sports facilities for organised sports on the island.

Doing sports on Texel

There are fourteen municipal sports fields on Texel divided over five sports complexes. They include an athletics track, skating rink, motocross track and even seven boules pistes. And there are also lots of opportunities to do indoor sports with an indoor (and outdoor) swimming pool, a large sports hall and several gymnasiums.

What’s more, every year, a number of major sports events take place on the island. The Round Texel Race (catamaran race), the Texel Dutch Open Championship Long Distance Windsurfing (part of the Round Texel Race), Tevoko Buitentoernooi (outdoor volleyball tournament), the Half Marathon attract thousands of participants and visitors.

Competing on Texel

If you participate in competitive sports in the north of North Holland, chances are you will be visiting Texel to compete. An extra fun away competition! The ferry crossing from Den Helder alone adds something special to your sports day. And once you are on the island, you can, of course, spend some time before or after the competition enjoying all the wonderful things the island has to offer.
