Survey Highlights

Some of the findings in the surveys include:

  • Overall participation in sport and physical activity in Wales kept to roughly the same levels during lockdown, despite no structured sport taking place.
  • Children, older adults (55+) and those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds tended to take part in less sport and physical activity during lockdown than they had done previously.
  • Usually around 10% of the adult population volunteer in sport every year, but during lockdown 30% said they want to volunteer in sport.
  • When leisure facilities reopened most people that accessed them said that they felt comfortable using them.
