Nearly 3,500 children will participate in the traditional King’s Games in Eindhoven next Friday. This is a week earlier than the national King’s Games, because the May holidays start a week earlier in the south of the country.

During the King’s Games, sports and fun are central for primary school students. In Eindhoven, approximately 3,450 students from 24 different schools participate in the event. On Friday they will be introduced to sports such as hockey, gymnastics, rugby, handball, free running, beach volleyball and padel at various sports parks in the city.

The Eindhoven King Games will be opened this year at Sportpark Eindhoven-Noord by sports councillor Maes van Lansschot. He gives the starting signal for the students at ten o’clock in the morning. They then start their day with the national King’s Games dance by Children for Children. This is followed by a day full of sportsmanship.

Next Friday there will not only be sports, but also clothing collected for the DRIP Foundation. This organisation ensures that children from Eindhoven, regardless of their financial situation, have second-hand sportswear at their disposal. The foundation has several collection boxes during the games where parents and children can donate their sportswear.


This year the national theme ‘Discover’ is central, with the focus on discovering what you don’t know yet. This includes exercise, food and drink. According to the organisation, this way students find out what suits them best.
