Data from Sport England‘s #ActiveLives Survey shows participation figures of 96,700 in Parkour/Freerunning!
The data on those (16+) in England that have participated in Parkour/Freerunning showed over 96,700* had taken part at least twice in the last 28 days! Almost twice the size of Skateboarding, three times the size of Judo and almost four times the size of Triathlon!
Find our more about the Active Lives Survey on Sport England’s website.
The data certainly demonstrates the reach, breadth and depth of Parkour/Freerunning, not just in England, but across the UK and our community.
We certainly feel that Parkour UK and our community have plenty to contribute to the Sport England strategy. In addition to the Government strategy #SportingFuture, coordinated by Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the strategic plans of Sport Wales, Sportscotland & Sport Northern Ireland
