Abstract: 
The distribution patterns of sports behavior or the probability of sporting differs amongst different classes of society and can be explained by factors such as (1) economic capital, (2) cultural capital, and (3) free time. In other words, the relationship of a person with their own body-which is a symbol of their class differentiates the working class from the middle and upper classes of the society. The working class have an instrumental relationship with their bodies and suffer various kinds of pain toward a pattern of "body for others": Whereas, upper classes deal with body as a "goal in itself" and turn towards sports for storing social capital and responding to their own aesthetic and ethical tastes. In a research-which this article is extracted from-the above mentioned issuse are examined following Pierre Bourdieu"s social capital approach.
