162 | Chapter 15 by way of contrast, there are also people whose willingness to practise sport stems more from the fact that they are offered an easy, accessible way to do so through activity anchors or enablers. For them it seems more appropriate to state that “where there’s a way to practise sport, a will arises”, whereby the emerging willingness mainly consist of an extrinsic motivation due to social support. Limitations and suggestions for future research There are some limitations to this study that we want to address. First, the interviews were conducted by students in sport science, with little to no experience with narrative interviewing. Although all of them received ample training to conduct the narrative interviews for this study, the quality of the interviews varied. However, the use of interview guides aimed at activating a storytelling mode in the participant, enriched with follow-up questions which could be deployed if necessary and the interview training, ensured the narrative character of all the interviews was sufficiently rich and the data were well saturated for the purpose of answering the research question. Second, the retrospective design of the questionnaire may have caused recall bias. In particular in the first wave, for which also some older participants were interviewed about their whole life course. These older participants had to dig deeper in their memory to talk about their transition to adulthood. Additionally, in the first wave we did not employ a Rapaport timeline as with the second wave, which structured the autobiographical recall process and helps to minimise recall bias. However, the unit of analysis did not concern individual participants, but narrative fragments regarding major life events and lived experiences in relation to sport participation during the transition to adulthood. All participants, the older ones included, lived through this transition and addressed their experiences clearly in their stories, resulting in valuable, insightful narrative fragments. Therefore, there is no reason to expect any large bias overall. Third, this study focussed on the transition to adulthood. But to understand sport participation and the effects of major life events over the whole life course, the narrative approach employed in this study could be employed in future research to investigate other life phases and transitions (e.g., childhood, middle age and old age) and associated major life events (e.g., starting
