Sport Policy & Management report No. 10: Understanding the game: sport participation in Europe

Sport Policy & Management reports is a publication series of the Research Unit of Social Kinesiology and Sport Management, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, K.U.Leuven. The SPM10-report includes interesting insights in differences in sports participation within Europe as well as methodological debates on comparative research and an overview of the involvement in sport of the European Commission. Data from different European countries and regions, gathered via fact sheets, have a key role in this report (the preliminary results of this comparison have already been made available before, via the SPM-website).
