Adult Participation in Sport and Active Recreation

Sport England’s Active People Survey provides by far the largest sample size ever established for a sport and recreation survey and allows levels of detailed analysis previously unavailable. It identifies how participation varies from place to place and between different groups in the population.

The survey also measures; the proportion of the adult population that volunteer in sport on a weekly basis, club membership, involvement in organised sport/competition, receipt of tuition or coaching, and overall satisfaction with levels of sporting provision in the local community.

The questionnaire was designed to enable analysis of the findings by a broad range of demographic information, such as gender, social class, ethnicity, household structure, age and disability.

The results for survey 4 and 5 (between October 2008 and October 2010) show that  in the north of the county, between 15% and 23% of adults participate in sport and recreational activity at least 3 times a week. The percentages are estimated to be slightly higher in the south of Warwickshire where up to 28% of adults take part in sport and active recreation of at least moderate intensity at least 3 times a week.
