The aim of this study is to examine the effect of sports on depression. In the study, semi-experimental method with pre-test, post-test, experiment-control group was used. The population of the research consists of individuals participating in sports activities at Bağcılar Olympic Sports Hall in Bağcılar district of Istanbul. On the other hand, 80 participants were formed in the related gymnasium. 40 participants who voluntarily participated in the study were assigned to the experimental group and 40 participants to the control group. Personal information form developed by the researcher and Beck Depression Inventory were used to learn the socio-demographic information of the athletes participating in the research. SPSS 25 program was used in the analysis of the data. In addition to descriptive statistics, nonparametric t-test and dependent sample tests were applied in SPSS 25 to determine the effect of sports on depression. According to the results of the analysis, the pre-test average scores of the participants in the experimental group are significantly higher than the post-test average scores (p <.05). There was no significant difference in the pre-test mean scores and post-test mean scores of the participants in the control group (t (39) = 587; p> .05). As a result, sports activities reduce the depression levels of the participants positively.
