The purpose of this research was to explore the decreased physical activity levels exhibited by individuals who are both female and residing in areas of social and economic disadvantage. More specifically, this paper describes the mediating role of technology as an anchor of practice for girls which could both facilitate or inhibit physical activity participation in different instances. Given the significant levels of inactivity in today’s society, it is crucial that providers both understand and utilise technology to maximise its potential as a facilitator of participation, whilst simultaneously limiting its force as an anchor of sedentary practice.
