Fitness for all doesn't come cheap, and that's where the sports lottery comes in.
Since 2002, around 2 billion of the 7 billion yuan raised by Hangzhou's sports lottery public welfare fund has been invested in the city's sports scene.
Sanyang village, with a population of around 2,000, is one of the beneficiaries and now boasts a new 8,000 square meter sports center that includes a soccer pitch, basketball courts and a fitness park.
The total investment was 1.8 million yuan - with 200,000 yuan from the lottery fund.
"The sports lottery has been an important way of supporting the national fitness program in our city," said Wang Li, deputy director of Hangzhou Sports Bureau.
"The money is from the people and it will be spent on the people - that's always been our principle.
"The money from the sports lottery has been used to upgrade venues and facilities, organize fitness activities and fund grassroots sports organizations."
Hangzhou's sports lottery has also helped fund the 2022 Asian Games, including venue construction and promotion.
One of those venues is Hangzhou's Public Body-Building Center - an 88,000 square meter complex to be opened in 2020 that cost 486 million yuan to build. About 150 million yuan of that outlay came from the sports lottery.
The center will be able to host competitions for swimming, badminton, basketball, table tennis and several other sports. After the Asiad, it will be open for public use.
"The sports lottery greatly helped the preparations for the 2022 Asian Games," Wang added.
"With the help of the lottery, we have also held many Asiad-themed sports, charity and promotional activities to create a great atmosphere to welcome the Games."
