All 89 Single Sport & Fitness Reports Released

SILVER SPRING, MD (Aug. 24, 2020) – The Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) has released 89 Single Sport & Fitness Reports, covering all sports and fitness activities ranging from basketball to barre to MMA fighting to scuba diving to pickleball, and much more. The individual activity reports provide detailed analysis, showing year-over-year trends, and breakdown of participation by a multitude of demographic variables. For example, pickleball participation has increased 7.2 percent over the last three years. The sport has attracted a base of wealthy, older Americans, as 38.7 percent of core participants are over the age of 65 and 49.9 percent of them live in households making over $100,000 per year.

“It’s interesting to see the foundation of each individual activity’s participation,” said SFIA CEO & President, Tom Cove. “The insight provided by these reports is crucial to companies’ ability to aptly target marketing and retail strategy, depending on their market’s consumer base and opportunities for growth.”
