Extracts from this document...


Unit 3: The Sports Industry Assignment 1 I have being asked to help my new neighbours The Smiths, find suitable sporting facilities for each member of the family who all have very different interests. Also, I need to give them plenty of information on each facility, Locally and nationally. Mr Smith Mr. Smith is keen on Bowls. He wanted to know of the closest Bowling Greens available to him in and around Leicester. The ones I found were: Barwell Bowls Club Barwell bowls club is a six rink indoor bowling club, which is constantly making additions and improvements. "They are a 12 months of the year club" meaning they are open all year. They have luxurious lounge and restaurant facilities and they have excess of 850 playing members and a healthy social membership, so Mr. Smith will always find someone to meet up with. Also their regular door staff will welcome him and point him in the right direction. The club remains open all year and the only day they close is Christmas day. Their hours in the winter program are from 9.30am - 10.35pm split into 2hour 10minute sessions, and in the summer they close the area in the afternoon hours of 2.00pm -5.45pm. Hinckley Bowls Club (Hollycroft Bowls Club) The club is an Outdoor Lawn Bowls Club, which plays throughout the summer months only. The club is small and friendly with around 50 members playing against other clubs in the West Leicestershire Area on Thursdays and Saturday afternoons. We are affiliated to the Leicestershire Bowling Association and the Hinckley and District Triples league where the clubs represented by two teams.

Spectating in sport simply means travelling to go see a particular sport of team play either professionally, for charity events or locally, e.g. if children are playing. Factors That Affect Participation in Sport There are lots of factors that affect or influence people's participation in sport, These are known as Barriers for Participation. Barriers for Participation Injury Injury is one of the main factors for stopping participation in sport. An example of an injury is A Broken Arm from playing Rugby. Disabilities Many things count as disabilities, things that stop people from acting or behaving the way they would usually for example, Loss of Limbs, Blind, and Trouble with Learning. Money Money can be a problem when wanting to take part in sport, some people have a lack of disposable income which stops them from being able to join in like everybody else. Gender Gender is important because girls have more "fragile" bodies than what men do as they have things like the womb, which can get damaged, if they choose to play an aggressive sport like Rugby. Ability So people don't lose their self-confidence they need to start playing at a sport that they can cope with or feel best at, with other people who are also at their level. Age Age can stop participation in sport for example having to retire like Piereluigi Collina the referee. Location If somebody wants to participate in a certain sport they need the facilities to be around their local area else it will put them of participating, as they wouldn't want to travel that far. Weather For any games that are taking part outside, the weather needs to be considered because anything from heavy rain the thunderstorms can be dangerous to players and spectators. Religion Certain religions can affect participation in sport for example, Muslim women can only go swimming if there are only women around. Fitness/Health Lack of fitness or illness can affect participation e.g. high blood pressure can get you more, tired more quickly. Btec First Diploma In Sport Kelsey Starkey 12GN 1 ...read more.
