Junior Sports Exchange

Every year since 1984, Nagoya and Nanjing have held a junior sports exchange, sending a delegation consisting mostly of junior high school students to each other's cities. We have strengthened our competitive abilities and deepened understanding of each other's cultures through friendly matches in a variety of sports. Up to the present, we have conducted matches in basketball, soccer, table tennis, and badminton.
