Volleyball and Equity Equity affects nearly all aspects of our lives none less than sports such as beach volleyball. Sport is an integral part of today’s society and as such, sport should be organised, participated in and distributed in an equitable manner. The aim of equity in sports is to encourage all people, regardless of age, gender, disability or ethnic origin to participate in and develop their potential within sport. Disputes over equity have been apparent in our society for hundreds of years, over such things as gender, religion or race. A framework developed by Figueroa deals with equity. It consists of five levels that link together – individual, interpersonal, institutional, structural and cultural. The following paragraphs demonstrate the use of Figueroa Framework as a tool to analyse the barriers to my performance in beach volleyball and part of this involves a peer evaluation (Appendix A). Each of these levels interacts with equity issues in various ways. These numerous levels deal with social beliefs, values, social position, power, media coverage, resources and rewards (Kirk et al, 2004).

Whilst growing up I wasn"tmt able to observe any beach volleyball and consequently I haven"tmt aspired, or been encouraged, to play beach volleyball. Beach volleyball isn"tmt a popular a sport in PNG. This affected my motivation, I had no one to aspire to and so I was not always inspired to play. These pictures portray women playing volleyball at an elite level. As a student playing beach volleyball this doesn"tmt affect my performance on the volleyball court. As an individual I have only played beach volleyball informally for recreation as opposed to playing it at a competitive properly managed standard. As they do not play beach volleyball in PNG I found this to be a barrier on a cultural level. This peer evaluation assessed confidence levels, understanding and leadership. However, this is not a barrier, on the contrary this provides motivation to prove myself as an equal on the court. These women were in most cases physically attractive and wearing a bikini. Whilst playing beach volleyball this term I have experienced barriers at the structural level. For example the institutional level describes how institutions disadvantage or advantage specific groups of people due to routine practices. I am shorter than most volleyball players who are expected to be tall and athletic (Appendix B). s that we can all have an active role in creating and reinforcing inequities, as noted paragraph below about gender inequity (Kirk et al, 2004).
