Information pack for Archery

This pack provides information which you can use in the development of NGB proposals.
Specifically, this information can be used to provide a rationale for focusing on particular
areas and for developing and agreeing interventions in partnership with Sport England.

The pack provides information on two of Sport England’s key Strategic Outcomes.

The information in this section will help you develop growth interventions and help to
understand equality issues in your sport. An understanding of your current market profile
will also help to develop interventions to increase satisfaction in your sport.

Archery: current participation profile

This section provides information on your current market profile i.e. the groups that are
currently participating in your sport.

By looking at your market, you can begin to gain an understanding of where participation
growth is more likely to occur. For example, if your current participant market is made up of
80% 16-19 year olds, it is probably more likely that any sustained increase in participation
will come from that younger group than among the 65+ age group.

The data also helps to identify inequalities in your sport. By comparing the demographic
breakdowns in your sport, with the demographic breakdown across all people who play
sport, and also the demographic profile of the total England population, you can gain an
understanding of the type of groups which are over (or under) represented in your sport.

It can also help you think about how you might tackle satisfaction in your sport. For
example, if the majority of your current participants have children, perhaps providing more
family friendly activities could improve satisfaction in your sport.

All data comes from the Active People Survey (2005/6) and refers to participation at least
once in the last four weeks.

•   30% archery participants are female compared to 46% all sports participants.

•   15% archery participants have a limiting illness or disability compared to 8% all sports

•   46% archery participants are aged 45 and over compared to 35% all sports

            This table benchmarks how well your sport is doing in attracting different groups of the
            population when compared to the prevalence of those that do any sport, do no sport and
            the overall population.

        Current participation figures in Archery

        This section uses Active People Survey data (2005/6) to illustrate current participation
        (defined as participated at least once in the last four weeks) among different groups. These
        participation figures have been translated into numbers of participants in the introduction.

        This provides further information on your current market, inequalities in participation and
        has potential impact on satisfaction.

        •    Current participation in archery sport is 0.11%

        •    Participation in archery is higher for males (0.16%) than females (0.06%)

        •    Participation is highest for 16-19 year olds (0.16%)

        •    Participation is lower for people with incomes below £15,599 (0.07%)

        •    Participation is highest for students (0.17%)

        •    Participation rates are very similar between those with and without a limiting illness or
             disability. This is very unusual for a sport.

Regional distribution of participation in Archery

This section uses Active People Survey data (2005/6) to illustrate the regional distribution of
Archery’s current market and the participation rates (once in the last four weeks) by region.

   •     The South East accounts for almost a fifth (18%) of all archery players.

   •     Participation varies greatly across the regions with both the South West and East
         Midlands accounting for higher proportions of participants than expected based on

Seasonal variation in participation

Using Active People Survey data (2005/6), it is possible to show seasonal fluctuations in
participation in sports. This will help to identify key periods where demand for your sport is
likely to be highest.

Archery participation remains constant throughout the year with very little seasonality.

Market segmentation

Market segmentation is a powerful tool which provides knowledge and further information
on your existing and potential customers. The sporting segments are based on research
gathered through the Active People and Taking Part surveys. The segments are built on
demographic data identified as impacting on sports participation and attitudes; this
includes gender, age, whether people have children and socio-economic status.

The segments provide information on the specific sports people take part in, the
motivations behind participation, whether they want to do more sport and the barriers to
participation. In addition, the market segments provide information on:

        •   Media consumption and most effective methods of communication;
        •   Health indicators including obesity;
        •   Participation in wider cultural activities.

As segmentation is underpinned by key socio-demographic variables, the segments can
be geographically quantified and appended to both customer records and the Electoral
Roll. Therefore, every adult in England can have a Sport England segment appended to
them, whilst a market segment profile can be counted at any geographic level within
England down to postcode.

This results in a powerful tool which allows users to understand the segment profile at local

In total 19 distinct sporting segments were identified. The figure below shows the 19
segments in relation to age (along the x axis) and sporting activity levels (3x30 along the y
axis with the red line indicating whether the segments activity level fall above or below the
national average of 21% achieving 3x30). The segments are divided into four
“supergroups” based on age. Supergroup A contains mainly 18-24 year olds, whereas
supergroup D contains mainly those aged 65+. This allows for comparisons between
segments of the same age. The segment circle size represents the proportion of people in
that segment across England. So for example, segment 19 “Elsie and Arnold” are relatively
large segments whereas segment 10 “Paula” represents relatively less people in England.
The chart below outlines the 19 segments and their key characteristics. provides much more information about the market
segments including pen portraits, how to use guides, technical documents and frequently
asked questions.

How market segmentation can be used in relation to Sport England’s strategic outcomes

Market segmentation can be used for both the grow and sustain outcomes. In terms of the
Grow outcome, the segments provide knowledge about who your potential customers are
most likely to be, and identifies geographic areas to target. The attitudes and barriers
information will help you to design interventions that appeal to your customers and the
marketing data will help you attract them.

In terms of the Sustain outcome, the segmentation information will help identify some of the
factors that could help decrease the drop-off in participation and increase satisfaction. For
example, Jamie would do more sport if he had people to go with and there were better
playing facilities available.

How to use Market Segmentation

There are many ways that segmentation can help your organisation attract new
participants and keep them in your sport. The knowledge provided by
segmentation, and in particular the information included in the pen portraits, can
assist you in:

   •   Offering programmes and services which customers want and need;
   •   Determining how to market to, and communicate with customers and
       potential customers;
   •   Developing approaches to marketing and communication;
   •   Developing new markets, securing and retaining new customers;

Identifying segments to target

For each segment we are able to tell the likelihood of taking part in a particular
sport. This is possible through creating an index system which allows you to
compare how distant the behaviour or an attitude of a particular segment is, from
the mean. An index of 100 shows average representation in the English adult
population, above 100 shows over representation and below 100 shows under
representation. For example Ben’s index for recreational cycling is 210, this means
he is more likely to cycle than the average. His index for doing any voluntary work in
the last 12 months is 98, so Ben is not more or less likely than the English average
to volunteer. His index for netball is 4, so he is much less likely than the average to
play netball.

Through the index system it is possible to identify which segments are most likely to
take part in particular sports. Once these segments have been established, the
segment profiles can help organisations to design interventions which are more
likely to succeed in attracting new participants. Knowing who your existing
segments are can also help in increasing satisfaction, by providing information on
what matters to your customers.

Which segments are most likely to take part in Archery?

   •   Most likely to play archery is Tim (index of 204), 0.2% of Tim’s play archery

   •   Second most likely to play archery is Philip (index 173), 0.2% of Philip’s play

   •   Ben and Kev are also more likely to play archery (indexes of 168, 146,
       respectively, % that play archery 0.2%, 0.2%)

   •   If females were a target group, Chloe is the female segments most likely to
       play archery.

   •   If you were to target segments from lower socio economic groups, Kev,
       Frank and Terry are the segment most likely to play archery.

   •   If you were to target segments with higher proportions of black and ethnic
       minorities, you would target Kev.

   •   If you were to target supergroup A (18-24 year olds) you would target Ben,
       supergroup B (25-45 year olds) you would target Tim, supergroup C you
       would target Philip (45-65 year olds) and supergroup D (65+ year olds) you
       would target Frank.

The chart below shows the proportion of archery players accounted for by different
segments. It shows that Tim’s represent the largest market share of archery players
(just under 20% of all archery players). The chart shows a spread of participation
across all segments.

Knowing where your customers are

Once target segments have been identified, the geographic function of market
segmentation means it is possible to identify where these segments are located.
The tables below show the percentage and number of adults for the two segments
most likely to take part in your sport broken down by CSP area. For example this
shows that there are 114,000 Philip’s in Essex representing 8.8% of the population.

These tables can help inform where investment can be targeted. For example, you
may want to target areas where there are higher numbers of the segments that you
know are more likely to play your sport.

Sport England has produced maps for each of the segments at national, regional,
CSP/County Council and Local Authority level. So, for example, if on the basis of
the table below you decide to work in Surrey and target Philips, you can explore a
map of Surrey to identify where there are high concentrations of Philips and
prioritise localised areas to work with. These maps are already available, as part of
the secondary offer support through the Sport England Research Team.

If you wish to look at even smaller geographic areas, segmentation profiles are
available down to super output area (geographic areas of approximately 1,500

Through Experian Business Strategies, it is also possible to analyse your existing
membership base by sporting segments. For example, are you attracting Leannes,
and are you attracting more or less than you would expect in relation to your
potential client base. There is a small cost implication to this, please speak to your
Sport England contact for more details

It is also possible to look at how likely areas are to take part in particular sports,
rather than looking at all 19 segments separately.

Examples of some of these maps are provided below. Further information is
available through the Engagement Teams and from the Sport England Research

Sustain – young people and drop off

There is no information for young people and participation in archery

Drop off

It is not possible to measure drop off in archery participation between the ages of
16 and 18

Reach of organised sport

Using Taking Part Survey data (2005), it is possible to explore the reach of
organised activity into individual sports. By looking at tuition, club membership and
competition separately, we can gain an understanding of what proportion of
participants a NGB is likely to be already working with and where perhaps there is
scope for widening the reach of organised sport.

If the proportions initially look low this is because anyone who took part in your
sport in the last 12 months, were asked to respond to this question, so it includes
those who take part in your sport in the most informal manner. If data is not
available for one of the three areas, competition, club and tuition; you can assume
that the proportion taking part in this area in your sport is relatively small. (Data is
excluded if the number of people answering positively to that question is less than

1.2% of all adults have taken part in archery in the last 12 months. This represents
506,000 people.

A reasonable number of archery players take part in structured participation as
shown by column B in the table below. A quarter of participants are members of a
club, however only just over 10% have received tuition or taken part in organised
competition. This reflects a limited structured element to participation.

  In the absence of sport-specific satisfaction measures and baselines, Sport England
  is able to provide information from qualitative research which provides some
  indications of the type of issues that impact on satisfaction.

  Henley Centre Headlight Vision (January 2008) found that current participants are
  fundamentally “satisfied” with their sporting experience. If they were not they would
  not be taking part. Sports existing customers are the converted and already feel
  that they are enjoying the right “conditions”. As such, perceptions of what makes a
  good experience, are centred mainly on emotional and subjective issues, rather
  than facilities and tangibles. The figure below demonstrates the key components
  which affect satisfaction. While there is some variation across sports these are
  nuanced rather than fundamental. The main drivers to satisfaction are intrinsic
  (these drivers are highlighted in pink).

  Do these factors differ across sports?

  The emotional and service/hygiene drivers are common to all sports and the
  remaining three drivers (coaching, organisation and social/belonging) a result of
  particular types of sport (see figure below).

  As an individual sport exertion/fitness, performance, service/hygiene and
  diversion/release are important to increasing satisfaction in archery. For those
  receiving tuition, coaching is also important.
