[ About Konami Sports' Initiatives ]

Since establishing our in-house gymnastics and swimming teams, we have strived to provide not only training facilities, but also an environment where our employees can balance work and sports events, with the goal of nurturing and producing athletes that can compete on the world stage.
Our team members have made continued efforts to foster greater interest and participation in sports through participating in various activities offered at Konami Sports Club facilities, and giving off-site lectures.
In addition, we have continued to hire retired athletes as employees, and have created an environment where they can nurture aspiring athletes as well as instruct children by drawing on their own experiences, so that we can provide them with a second career.

As a new initiative in 2019, we introduced the "Konami Sports Club My Best Challenge Support Program," which was certified for the "beyond2020 My Best Program" promoted by the Secretariat of the Headquarters for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Cabinet Secretariat.
In the program, we help our customers achieve their My Best goals, by setting and confirming their goals through competitions and recoding their times in swimming, table tennis and golf, and providing guidance through our experienced instructors who have a wealth of expertise gained through years of fitness club management.

Konami Sports considers sports promotion to be an integral part of society, and will strive to convey the joy of sports and exercise to a wider audience. In line with this, we will contribute to the nurturing of world-class athletes from children to adults through consistent instruction, and promote the growth and development of sports.
