Survey

 

My name is Anna Martin and I am a postgraduate student at Manchester Metropolitan University. Along with my supervisor, Dr Zoe Franklin, I am conducting a research project investigating the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic and government implemented restrictions on the exercise habits of those usually engaged in recreational sport.

 

I am writing to you to ask if you would be interested in participating in this research and might be able to distribute the following questionnaire to members of your Rambling club.

 

We are hoping to collect data from individuals that partake in numerous recreational sports across the country, from differing backgrounds and age groups (aged 18+), and would be very grateful if some of your members would be able to participate. There are no right or wrong answers; we are purely interested in how the social-distancing restrictions are impacting on exercise behaviours and all responses will be anonymised and kept confidential. This study has been approved by the Manchester Metropolitan Ethics Committee.

 

We hope that this research will help us to understand how people are coping in the current climate and provide insight as to how individuals may be encouraged to exercise in scenarios where access to sporting provisions is limited. Findings could also help inform policies for reintroduction of recreational sport. 

 

The questionnaire should only take about 25 minutes to complete and can be accessed by clicking on the link below:

Please do not hesitate to get in touch to ask any questions and we really appreciate your time and assistance with this research project.

 

Kind regards,
