      • many lifestyle factors can prevent us from spending our time participating in leisure activities
      • men enjoy at least 32 minutes more leisure time than women
    • Choice
      • your leisure choices are restricted by where you live
      • restricted to do leisure activities due to limited transport
      • in rural areas or run down cities they may find fewer facilities, poor transport and less information on whats happening
    • Disability access and provision

      • it is very difficult to participate if you have a disability and lack the strength, skills and confidence

    • Economic Factors
      • Lower income, travel costs, expensive equipment, entry fees, leisure activities
      • Lowest income groups - those on benefits, low wages, unemployed, elderly, students
      • 13.5 million people in the UK were living in households below the 60% low income threshold
      • low income households are lacking the income to spend on basic essentials
    • Equity and diversity
      • often access and opportunity are denied because of; gender - many sports are male dominated so girls don't feel confident to join
      • Ethnicity - racism may prevent joining or may effect what females are allowed to do
      • Social class - certain sports may be restricted only to those on higher incomes or from higher social class
