Analysing the socioeconomic barriers to sports participation in urban areas

Author(s):

Divesh Goyal

Abstract:

This review explores the socioeconomic barriers that impede sports participation in urban areas. By synthesizing data from multiple studies, this paper identifies key factors such as economic constraints, inadequate access to facilities, and cultural barriers that disproportionately affect lower-income populations. The review utilizes both quantitative and qualitative research methods to gather a comprehensive view of how these barriers influence different demographic groups. Findings indicate that these impediments not only hinder physical activity participation but also perpetuate social inequalities. The paper concludes with recommendations for policy makers aimed at reducing these barriers and promoting greater inclusivity in urban sports programs.
