dc.description.abstractThis study has two primary objectives; to investigate what the factors affect males aged 18 - 25 getting involved in sport and physical activity, and to compare the differences in these barriers between rural and urban areas. Following extensive review of the literature an appropriate research method was derived to achieve the best results for both objectives. The research method chosen was a qualitative approach which consisted of 6 overall interviews, 3 from rural participants and 3 from urban participants. From the interviews it was found that there were differences in the 2 demographic areas but they did share some common barriers. The rural participants identified unique barriers such as access and variety whereas the urban participants highlighted cost and quality of facilities as their specific barriers. Combined barriers included time and social constraints that underpinned the specific barrier. The findings concluded that strategies could be implemented to target non-participants in different ways according to their demographic location. Also participants highlighted ways in which to do this that can be expanded through further research.en_GB
