Data on physical activity in children is scarce in Switzerland, though a better understanding of its levels and changes is of primary concern for public health. Parent-proxy data from the Swiss Household Panel survey 2007 were used to describe participation of 5 to 13 year old children in sport clubs or similar associations. Almost three quarters of boys and girls were members of such organisations, with lower participation under about 8 years of age. The most popular sports practiced among boys were football and among girls dance and gymnastics. The parents’ socioeconomic status, physical activity and sports club membership showed an association with the child’s behaviour. Further exploration of these relationships may provide a better understanding of possibilities for intervention.
