Feltham, England -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/22/2015 -- Recent figures from the Local Government Association have revealed what could be considered a surprising decline in the number of people taking part in sports at least once a week. The number of over 16-year-olds taking part in weekly sporting activities has fallen by at least 400,000 since 2012, despite initiatives for involvement at the time of The Olympics and the later Commonwealth Games. It is suggested that this highlights an issue in public attitudes to sport – with many people failing to participate in a weekly event due to struggles to commit or disillusionment with the activity. Hence there is set to be a forward-thinking focus to come of this in terms of the encouraged publicity of exciting, alternate sports. A prime example is the high-adrenaline action of BB shooting and skirmishing.
Recent months have seen airsoft and BB gun activities growing in popularity, as offering a high-adrenaline sport which can be conducted in a safe way. Unlocking these surprising and innovative ways of being active could be seen as an important strategy for re-engaging the public with physical activity – as a fall in weekly sports could suggest that sedentary lifestyles are taking over, lacking in physical exertion, which can be unhealthy. Keen to comment on this was Just BB guns, an expert in airsoft provision.
A spokesperson had this to say:
"The fall of participation in sporting activities is a concern, but the important thing is to address this, not just to dwell on it. Part of encouraging people to get involved is to celebrate the diversity of sports available in Britain which can provide people with real release – and airsoft activities are certainly one example. With a BB gun you can enjoy a fast-moving physical activity as well as some great fun – and there is a rise of skirmishing and bb facilities in the country, so more people can get involved. Why not get back to enjoying exercise in an exciting way?"
