    Sport voor allen?: sociale gelaagdheid van sportbeoefening in Europa

Abstract

Sports and Europe are inextricably interwoven. On the one hand the Old Continent is the birthplace of modern sport and the Olympic Movement. On the other hand active sport participation has developed into one of the most common forms of leisure activities. Using Eurobarometer-data from 2005 (N = 29193) this paper paints a picture of (the social stratification of) sport participation in Europe, and in Belgium in particular. The results show that even now four out of ten Europeans are not exposed to sport or physical activity in their leisure time. Moreover, physical activity patterns are still characterized by social differentiation according to sex, age, educational level, occupation, marital status and socio-geographical status. In spite of 30 years Sport-for-all policy, Europe still has to strive for a further democratization of sport participation.
