Older teenagers don't exercise

4th November 2009

Figures obtained by the Liberal Democrats have shown that the majority of 19-year-olds in England do not take regular exercise once they have left school.

Only 30% in that age group participate in at least 30 minutes of sport, of at least moderate intensity, three times a week or more and only a fifth of sixth formers reach the target of three hours of sport a week. The statistics from Sport England and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport were obtained by the Liberal Democrats in response to a parliamentary question.
