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

There are limited local sports options. UNIS has great swim program and sports in MS and HS and soccer club on Saturdays. UNIS also has a music academy (UMA) with lessons in variety of instruments. (my kids took piano lessons there). Hanoi Football Youth League has several teams: Hanoi Capitals baseball club consists of mostly of Vietnamese kids, and a few Americans. They meet on weekends for practices and put together tournament teams for regional tournaments. - Jul 2019


For older kids, yes, through the schools and some community-based. Not much is available for the preschool age. - Apr 2018


Yes, at the international schools. Hanoi has little open green space (the park space that exists is often pretty crowded already) so it's not a great city for extracurricular sports and outdoor activities. Embassy events at the American Club (which has a small basketball court, a volleyball court, and a grassy lawn) take place from time to time and are great for families to come together. If you poke around you can find tennis/golf/sports instructors at the various club facilities available around the city. - Dec 2017
