If there is one thing the locals are passionate about in Accra, it is sports. Most of the beaches will play host to an impromptu football match, a game of volleyball or even a hockey match. Anyone visiting Accra with even a passing interest in sport should visit the Accra Sport Stadium and try to catch a football match. The local team is known as the Accra ‘Hearts of Oak’ and the games are exciting, passionate affairs.
If your idea of sporting activity is slightly more leisurely, be sure to hire a five-iron or two and head over to the Achimota Golf Club Golf Club. With 18 holes and a beautiful, woodland setting, the course is challenging enough to test the skills of even the most dedicated golfer. If you are new to the sport, introductory courses and lessons are on offer. However, if that is too much for you, hunt out Marvels Mini-Golf centre in Dzorwulu, - perfect for when you are visiting Accra with children.
