Are local sports classes and/or activities available for kids?

Yes. - Oct 22, 2017
Swimming lessons are common. One of the expatriate moms had a little soccer team for preschoolers when I was there. There are not a ton of quality kid activities. Music Together had classes which were good. We did a lot of playdates and playgroups. There are a few playgrounds that are ok. Nothing is Western quality for the most part. - Mar 15, 2017

AES has excellent sports offerings. My son plays both softball and baseball (competitive, traveling baseball teams are rare in the Foreign Service). My daughter is on track and field. This is the first school we've had that's offered track and field. Usually it's just running. My kids are very happy. - Aug 14, 2013
Yes, there is a well-developed Little League program, and many school-associated sports leagues. - May 18, 2013

Delhi International Football (soccer) league is the largest organized sports group in the city, but tends to be over competitive (i.e. cheating) and the quality of volunteer coaches varies widely. Some softball/baseball is available through the US Embassy. The American school has started to expand its sports programs. - Sep 18, 2010
