Abstract: Social structural transition and social hierarchization exist objectively in modern China. There is a sig-nificant difference between various hierarchies in sports population, sports activities performed and playgrounds for performing sports activities, which is called “sports hierarchization”. In consideration of social hierarchization and sports relation participation, this phenomenon is conducive not only to locating the root causes for unequal sports hierarchization and reducing the difference between various hierarchies in sports activities performed, but also to the growth of sports population, the boost of sports popularization, and the development of the sports industry.
Key words: social hierarchization; social sports; sports hierarchization; unequal; sports participation
