Heilbronn is a sports-friendly city: In nearly 70 sports clubs, ranging from general sports clubs to state-wide motorboat clubs, there are some 30,000 active members. And, there are also around 120 hobby and leisure clubs, too. You can find a list of numerous sports clubs and associations that you can join on the homepage of the Heilbronn sports association (www.sport-heilbronn.de).
Many residents of Heilbronn have an immigration background and that is taking on an increasingly important role in organized sports. With the support of the federally funded program "Integration through sport" by the Landessportverband Baden-Württemberg and by the Württembergischer Landessportbund, sports clubs and associations, including some Heilbronn sport clubs, are actively engaged in promoting diversity, integration and an inclusive culture, and welcome new members from different cultural backgrounds.
