Evaluation of the local physical activity and sport network in Nendaz: Results of two crosssectional population-based surveys


Wanner, M; Praz, M; Wyss, T; Martin, B W (2009). Evaluation of the local physical activity and sport network in Nendaz: Results of two crosssectional population-based surveys. Schweizerische Zeitschrift für Sportmedizin und Sporttraumatologie, 57(2):84-86.

Abstract

The aim of local physical activity and sport networks in Switzerland
is to improve co-operation between different players in
physical activity and sport promotion in a community, town or
region. Nendaz has introduced such a network in 2004. Two
postal questionnaire surveys were carried out in 2005 and 2007.
The local network in Nendaz reached a high level of awareness,
its utilisation in the population and satisfaction were generally
good. Physical activity behaviour was high in both years compared
to the general French-speaking population in Switzerland.
In order to judge the effects of such an intervention on the
population level, baseline surveys should be carried out before
the start of the project and control communities should be studied
simultaneously.
