This table presents an overview of sports clubs, sports schools, riding academies, sailing and surfing schools and self-employed sports instructors registered at the Chambers of Commerce.
It presents information on the number of sports clubs, sports schools (including self-employed sports instructors), riding academies, sailing and surfing schools, their members, the people receiving instruction and the total of their operating costs and revenues.
There haven been some major changes in survey design since the sports surveys started.
Before 2000 the survey on clubs for water sports and sailing and surfing schools had a different year of review than the survey on the other sports clubs, sports schools, self-employed sports instructors and riding academies. In the latter survey fitness centres were excluded from 1996 and onwards, while the categories of clubs and schools istinguished also changed.
In this table the pre-1996 categories are used. Data for later years have been adapted to fit the old categories.
Data available from: 1987-2006
