Abstract

The chapter provides the discussion of sport policy and the sport system in Poland. It can be classified as an interventionist, centralized, bureaucratic, and intensely formalized but unstable. Intervention on sport system by state is based on legal regulation – law is the main tool using by state to govern Polish sport.

The current Polish sport system is a combination of traditional and contemporary elements – voluntary activity of nonprofit organizations with centralized state administration management. The system consists of nongovernmental organization mainly financed by the public sources.

At the same time Poles largely prefer to organize sport and recreation sessions on their own. They organize such activity either alone or among their relatives or friends. Polish people relatively rarely take advantage of the offer of sport clubs or private organizers of sport and recreation sessions. Poles most often declare noninstitutional and outdoor (43 %) forms of physical activity. Only 3 % of Poles visit fitness clubs (compared to 11 % of Europeans) and 5 % train at sport clubs.
