dc.description.abstract The study identifies the needs and interests of the community in Mamelodi Extension 5 with regard to sport and recreation facilities. There is a need to determine the role of sport in society to fulfil the sport-related needs and to find out how these needs can be addressed by the social facilitation of sport. The study offers an understanding of aspects of sport and recreation in the area. A review was done of relevant literature dealing with sport and recreation. The sources used to gather information embodied books, magazines, articles, newspapers, media reports, government reports and information from the internet. Stratified random sampling was used to collect data from the residents of Mamelodi East Extension 5. A questionnaire served as the main data collection tool. It was piloted on thirty (30) residents who did not serve in the final sample of respondents. This assisted to gauge the validity of the questionnaire. The empirical study was done with three hundred (300) questionnaires that were filled in by the respondents to get their views relating to sport and recreation. Face-to-face interviews were used to collect data, which were analysed using SPSS spreadsheets. The study found that sport and recreation facilities were scarce in the area, that only few facilities were available but mostly ill equipped and that most residents did not participate in sport and recreation. The main recommendation was that management of clubs and institutions that deal with sport and recreation be involved in encouraging and assisting residents to use the facilities in their localities. en
