Abstract

The aim of this study is researching the participation of athletes in recreational activities and determining the type of recreational activities they participate in. 150 athletes, 83 males and 67 females, between the ages of 18-28, studying at the Faculty of Sports Sciences, participated in the study. Among the criteria for inclusion in the study is the criterion of "continuing active sports life". A questionnaire about the demographic information of the athletes and their participation in recreational activities was prepared by the researcher. Binomial test and k-square tests were used for statistical analysis of the data.

While the rate of those who answered "no" to the question "Do you participate in recreational activities" is 27%, the rate of those who answered "yes" is 73%. The proportion of athletes participating in recreational activities was statistically significantly higher than those who did not participate (p<0.01). While the rate of those who answered "1-2 times" to the question "How many times a week do you participate in recreational activities" is 69%, the rate of those who answered "3-5 times" is 31%. The rate of athletes participating in recreational activities 1-2 times a week is statistically significantly higher than 3-5 times a week (p<0.01). While the rate of those who answered "no" to the question "Does Recreational Activities Affect Your Performance in the Competition" is 40%, the rate of those who answered "yes" is 60%. The rate of athletes whose competition performance was affected was higher than those who were not affected statistically significantly (p<0.01). It was determined that the status of participation in activities, the number of participation in activities and the effect of recreational activities on performance were not statistically different between men and women (p>0.05).

As a result, it was observed that the participation of women and men in recreational activities did not differ. It is seen that the athletes participate in recreational activities and keep this participation limited to 1-2 times a week, and participation in recreational activities does not affect their performance.
