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

There are some, like soccer and ballet. But I have been disappointed by the options. - Sep 2020

Most sports teams and activities are affiliated with the schools. The sports teams are not particularly competitive. There's at least one private soccer club (TAFA), but there aren't (m)any other leagues/teams to compete against. There are private cricket clubs. Kids can take private swimming and tennis lessons. Music lessons, particularly piano, seem hard to come by. - Apr 2020

There are local sports available. Many through the school but some kids are in swimming, soccer, and tennis. There is also dance, gymnastics (although very limited) and even some karate. - Sep 2017

There are lots of after-school activities tied to the schools. There are tennis lessons, swimming facilities and soccer clubs that all ages can participate in, depending on the area of town that you live, you will want to find the closest one. - Mar 2017
