recommended minimum hours of sports

Up to 80% of children in the EU only practise sport in school. Physical education is a mandatory subject throughout full-time compulsory general education.
Nevertheless, the prescribed taught time differs significantly from one country to another. In primary education in 2011-2012, the average taught time per school year varied between 37 hours in Ireland and 108 in France. At secondary level, the figures range from 31 hours in Malta to 108 hours in France. These results show that without practising an intense physical activity outside school, children in the EU are far from reaching the WHO recommendations on physical activity.
