Conference paper

Abstract

It can be said of young people in general that they are very good “consumers” of sports. This also applies to physically disabled youth. The aim of this study was to investigate the attractiveness of various sports disciplines for 85 individuals aged 12 to 21 living in an institution for the physically disabled. The data were collected in September, 1992. Using contingency tables, we present the most popular sports that were actively participated in; the sports the youths would most wish to play if they had a chance; and the sports they most frequently watched on television.
