Abstract

The study investigated constraints faced by University of Venda students in sport and recreation participation. A cross sectional study was conducted with 400 registered full-time students randomly sampled from different faculties within the University of Venda. Self-administered close-ended questionnaires validated using a hierarchical model of understanding leisure constraints guided the data collection process. Descriptive statistics (frequency and percentages) were used to analyse data. The major findings indicated that intrapersonal and structural constraints were ranked highest based on the response rate (percentages). Even though interpersonal constraints were ranked low, they do have less influence on student participation in sport and recreation. The study concludes that intrapersonal and structural constraints are dominant in sport and recreation participation among University of Venda students. It recommends strategies to overcome the constraints in sport and recreation participation at the University.
