ABSTRACT

The study examined the causal relationship between serious leisure tendency and leisure motivation. Based the review of related literature, a conceptual model of serious leisure tendency and leisure motivation was developed. Then, in order to test the model, data were collected from 200 serious leisure participants in Jeju province from July to October in 2008. Most of the respondents had a membership at a sport club like baseball, soccer, bowling, and golf club. Second-order confirmatory analysis, structural equation model analysis, and canonical correlation analysis were used to test the conceptual model. Results indicated that the tendency for serious leisure consisted of six sub-dimensions, and that the leisure motivation consisted of four sub-factors. Results also showed that the second-order serious leisure construct strongly influenced the second-order leisure motivation construct. Results from this study supported the finding from previous studies that there was a positive relationship between tendency for serious leisure and leisure motivation.
