Injury statistics per sport, per 100,000 participants.
Advertisements [?]
Don't let the fools confuse you.
TENNIS
In 2003, out of 100,000 participants, there were 1,228 injuries serious enough to require hospitalization. Other injuries, including those requiring a doctor's visit were 21,300 injuries, including sprains, strains, fractures, carpal tunnel, lacerations, torn skin.

SOCCER, a more violent sport
In 2003, out of 100,000 participants, there were 1,232 injuries serious enough to require hospitalization. Other injuries were estimated at 30,000, sprains, strains, etc.

CHEERLEADING (like King George)
In 2003, out of 10,000 participants, there were 219 injuries serious enough to require hospitalization. That is almost 2x the rate of soccer and tennis. (per 100,000 participants)

HUNTING
In 2003, with multiple participants, throughout the entire nation, with more than four MILLION hunters, there were a total of 668 gun injuries, 1/5 of which were self-inflicted. That works out to be per 100,000 participants, that means 16.7 hunters were shot, 3 of whom shot themselves.

Anyway you cut it, Hunting is mainly done by people who are safe, highly trained, careful and who try to respect others. You know. People totally unlike Dick Cheney.

These figures were collated from Industry Intelligence Reports (hunting), medline (tennis and net ball statistics) and Sports Injury Bulletin.
