Famous people / sporting ledgends often inspire us to take part, buy sport equitment e.c.t. friends and family influence us also, somtimes going to the gym or jogging with a friend or family member will encourage you.

Cultural Influences

Age can influence you for instance sadly there may be ristrictions or you can join but you train with people of a higher level. Thankfully schools encourage you.

Health and Well-being

Most people dont live near a sports centre or a swimming pool but you can still buy equitment and play at the local palk or field. Other issues are many clubs are full and others cant get transport. Others are resricted to men or women only when despite your gender you could contribute.


this can influence sport because if you live in a certian area and nobody nearby does sport you wouldnt want to take part. And if teres a popular sport being taught near by your more likley to take part.
