Changes of sports behavior in Germany in the Covid-19 pandemic

The Social Science of Sport research unit has published first representative findings on the change in sports behavior in the German population during the Covid-19 related lockdown in March and April 2020. The results indicate a significant decrease in sports activity, but at the same time show that some population groups have succeeded in quickly adapting their sports behavior to changed conditions. Furthermore, the findings show that forced inactivity was associated with reduced well-being. Results are published in two articles: "Sport and exercise in times of self-quarantine: How Germans changed their behaviour at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic" (International Journal for the Sociology of Sport) and "Forced adaptations of sporting behaviours during the Covid-19 pandemic and their effects on subjective well-being" (European Societies).
