Watersports activities: participation in the United Kingdom (UK) 2005-2018 In a survey, conducted annually from 2015 to 2018, the share of people participating in any form of watersport in the United Kingdom (UK) was established. According to the survey, overall tendencies towards watersports increased gradually from a quarter of the population in 2005 to roughly 31.8 percent in 2018 with some up and downs in between. Overall the most popular activities are spending leisure time at the beach, coastal walking, swimming and recreational boating.

Swimming
