This FACT indicates the participation rates for regular sport and recreation for people aged 15 years and older.

A participant or player is a person who has played a sport or physically undertook an activity for exercise or recreation at least once in the 12 months prior to the survey. People who participated more than twice a week on average in each month over the 12 month period were considered to have participated regularly from data available 2013/14. People involved solely as a coach, teacher, instructor, referee, umpire, administrator or club committee member are excluded from the data. Some of the sports included were cycling (BMXing and mountain biking), dancing(ballet and boot scooting) and swimming and diving, as well as team sports and gym workouts.

The state with the highest participation in regular sporting activities was the Australian Capital Territory with 72.9 percent, and the lowest was Queensland with 53.6 percent.
