Abstract: 
We survey the literature on the link of labour market related outcomes to individ-ual physical activity and sports participation. The first part of the survey is devoted to the individual participation decision and is based on papers from various disciplines. The sec-ond part summarises parts of the epidemiological literature on health effects and the eco-nomic literature on the labour market effects as well as on the effects on well-being and so-cial capital. Somewhat surprisingly, at least for studies in empirical economics, all the papers seem to agree that individual leisure sports participation and physical activity has positive effects for adults.
