Download report

There was a marked decline in swimming, with 360,400 fewer people taking part.

The survey also measures the number of people volunteering in sport and activity, and showed there has been a significant decline in the last 12 months with 400,500 fewer people volunteering at least twice a year in sport. There is a similar pattern across all sectors of volunteering, with numbers declining in many areas over the last four years.

The Sport and Recreation Alliance is shocked at the loss of 400,000 volunteers. and in the video its Director of Communications Chantel Scherer urges the sport sector to modernise the way it connects volunteers with clubs to promote physical activity.

Tracey Crouch, Minister for Sport and Civil Society, said: "We are working hard to get more people active and harness the benefits that sport brings."
