It has become commonplace to associate participation in sport and exercise with positive health, with the NHS even branding sport as a ‘miracle cure’. Such recommendations lean on empirical evidence that emphasises the benefits of physical activity on overall health –both physical and mental. These guidelines are well-meaning, but they rely on a view of sport that is shorn of cultural context, and does not account for how experiences of sport and exercise vary enormously for different groups within society.
