Research by StreetGames has found that friendship has a key role to play to drive sport participation in young women. 

Key findings

  • 63% of young women say they won't play sport or exercise without a friend by their side.
  • Since school, 44% of young women have rarely played any sport. 
  • 77% of young women said the number one reason for playing sport would be to catch up with their friends. 

The research is published alongside a guide which considers how friendship groups can influence and impact on successful physical activity programmes. 

Downooad the research.
