The end of membership as we know it? Organized sports and sustainable social ties
01.09.2013 to 01.09.2017
General project description 

Together with the Netherlands’ Institute for Sport and Physical Activity (NISB) and fifteen National Sport Organizations (NSOs), representing over 3.2 million sport club members, this research project examines changes in membership and engagement in sport clubs. Combining a sociological, geographical and public administration perspective, we analyze to what extent people bond themselves to one another in sport clubs and are willing to engage themselves with their club. We zoom in on regional and social differences and variations with respect to each branch of sport. The study is based on a mixed methods design, including both quantitative and qualitative research and the application and assessment of interventions. The goal of the research project is to develop new insights into (changing) meanings of citizenship, membership and membership organizations in Dutch society in general and sport organizations in particular. In doing so, we intend to help Dutch sport organizations to successfully anticipate and respond to changing meanings that sport participants attach to club membership and engagement, and to contribute to wider scholarly and public debates on civil society and social cohesion.

Project:
Sports and physical activity in public space 01.10.2013 to 01.10.2016
General project description

A way to stimulate sports and physical activity is by designing and redeveloping public spaces such that they increase physical activity. Existing literature has addressed the relationship between built environment and physical activity on the neighbourhood level but some vital issues have received limited attention:
a. Individuals spend a significant part of their time outside their neighbourhoods and may
use physical activity options there;
b. Issues such as the design, layout and amenities within public spaces have received
limited attention, whereas they may be crucial for individuals’ physical activity
c. The existing literature does not distinguish well between activities with different
intensity.



This project applies a novel combination of techniques (GPS tracking combined with
accelerometers) to investigate:
1. How physical activity is distributed across the home location, the neighbourhood and
more remote locations;
2. Individuals’ behaviour within public spaces to determine what elements are most
attractive;


These issues are investigated in multiple locations for different target groups. In Zuid-Limburg we investigate the dynamics in the use of public spaces for children in transition from elementary school to secondary school. In Rotterdam and Utrecht we investigate the use of neighbourhood and urban parks for physical activity among 45-65 year olds. GPS/accelerometer measurements are followed by qualitative research to elicit fine grained qualitative aspects of public spaces that stimulate of prohibit their use for physical activity. Based on the outcomes we will work with planners and public health professionals, to develop policy recommendations for increasing physical activity via public spaces.

Individual project description

A way to stimulate sports and physical activity is by designing and redeveloping public spaces such that they increase physical activity. Existing literature has addressed the relationship between built environment and physical activity on the neighbourhood level but some vital issues have received limited attention:
a. Individuals spend a significant part of their time outside their neighbourhoods and may
use physical activity options there;
b. Issues such as the design, layout and amenities within public spaces have received
limited attention, whereas they may be crucial for individuals’ physical activity
c. The existing literature does not distinguish well between activities with different
intensity.



This project applies a novel combination of techniques (GPS tracking combined with
accelerometers) to investigate:
1. How physical activity is distributed across the home location, the neighbourhood and
more remote locations;
2. Individuals’ behaviour within public spaces to determine what elements are most
attractive;


These issues are investigated in multiple locations for different target groups. In Zuid-Limburg we investigate the dynamics in the use of public spaces for children in transition from elementary school to secondary school. In Rotterdam and Utrecht we investigate the use of neighbourhood and urban parks for physical activity among 45-65 year olds. GPS/accelerometer measurements are followed by qualitative research to elicit fine grained qualitative aspects of public spaces that stimulate of prohibit their use for physical activity. Based on the outcomes we will work with planners and public health professionals, to develop policy recommendations for increasing physical activity via public spaces.
