Posted on 16/03/2013 11:56

The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between the spatial accessibility to specific types of sports facilities and the practice of the corresponding sports.

Four categories of sports were studied: team sports, racket sports, swimming and related activities, and fitness. The spatial accessibility to swimming pools was associated with swimming and related sports, even after adjustment for individual/contextual factors. The spatial accessibility to facilities was not related to the practice of the other sports. High neighborhood income was associated with the practice of a racket sport and fitness.
