Latest Active People results show a decrease in BME participation
2.84 million people from black and minority ethnic groups (36.7%) aged 16 years or over played sport once a week, a decrease of 77,200 compared with the March 2015 result and 87,200 fewer than the September 2015 result for this group. A drop in participation amongst non-British white people has contributed to the latest results.
There has been an increase of 691,000 people from black and minority ethnic groups playing sport compared with APS1. During this period, 3.00 million people from black and minority ethnic groups aged 14 years or over (37.5%) played sport once a week.
