Leisure and Recreation

  • Leisure activities are typically passive, require little or no physical activity, and can be done individually.
  • Recreational activities, on the other hand, require physical activity and interaction with others.

Spectator and Participant Types

  • A spectator is a person who intentionally chooses to watch an event, often referring to people watching games or planned events.
  • A participant is an individual engaging in activities during their leisure time, including informal recreational participation in groups.

Types of Recreation
