This paper has it’s background in Physical Activity on Prescription, a projectwhich the Swedish sports movement is part of. The study refers to a limiteddivision of sports for adults, namely a phenomenon here by referred to as dropin-activity. This form of physical activity is characterized by an understandingthat the participant often lack experience and that it is possible to pay for eachoccasion. The purpose of the study was thus to take a closer look on organized,non-profit sports clubs which offer this type of exercise for adults. To get theresults interviews was carried out in three different sports clubs with leaders ofthe activity and members from the board. The respondents were asked to talkabout their thoughts and experiences of the activity involving physical activity ofdrop-in nature executed in each sport club. The theoretical framework used toanalyze the interviews was the phenomenon of logics within sport, as describedby Stenling and Fahlén (2009). The analysis resulted in the identification of twomain logics; Social values and Resources for continued existence. The healthperspective were analyzed on the basis what had, or had not been said abouthealth in the interviews. The results show that growth is a main issue which canbe used to motivate the Swedish sport clubs to develop their activities. It’s alsoshown that the participants of the drop in-activities don’t get as much attention asthe ordinary members of the sport clubs which is crucial if the social values areto be obtained. The conclusions are that in order to make the healthimplementations work the programmatic approach has to be clear and consist ofterms that is easily related to.
