32 Individual Single Sport Reports Are Now Available for Purchase
SILVER SPRING, MD (April 18, 2023) – The Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) has released its first batch of 2023 Single Sport Reports, including 32 individual sport reports from the team sports, racquet sports, and action sports categories. These reports provide a detailed analysis and breakdown of participation by various demographics and by specific sport or fitness activity.
As reported in our 2023 Topline Participation Report, more Americans participated in at least one sport, fitness exercise, or outdoor recreation activity in 2022 than in any of the five previous years. We also saw activity in the U.S. increase for the fifth consecutive year.
“In 2022, SFIA saw the overall physical participation rate in America continue to rise, and the team sports rates overall approached 2019 levels for first time since the pandemic hit,” said Tom Cove, President & CEO, SFIA. “Our Single Sport Report series provides actionable, drill-down data on every team sport including basketball, outdoor soccer, and flag football, which all saw increases, and of course we anticipate pickleball being one of the most highly requested Single Sport Report as it continues to be the fastest-growing sport or activity in the United States.”
Each report provides a detailed analysis and breakdown of participation by various demographics for the specific sport or activity. This includes data on participation as defined by gender, participation frequency, age, geographic region, market size area, income, education level, cross-sport/activity participation, and ethnicity.
