As sports fans get older, they often become only spectators of their favourite sports, no longer taking part themselves.  While 46% of soccer fans aged 16-24 play soccer, for example, only 17% of soccer fans aged 55-64 play the game.  Golf is a true participation sport across all age groups, with rates of taking part remaining between 48% and 53% of golf fans across the age groups.
