The purpose of the present study was to compare the quality of life of women participating in and participating in public sports. The statistical population of the study is Ardebil's twenty to sixty year old women and their number is unlimited. The number of subjects was determined based on Cochran's formula for an unlimited population of 300,000 individuals. Accordingly, three hundred and eighty four women participating in public sports were randomly selected for the experimental group and the same number of non-participating women were randomly selected for the control group. The WHO Short Form Quality of Life Questionnaire was used to achieve the research objectives. The validity of the questionnaire was confirmed by fifteen experts and its reliability in the pilot study with thirty subjects with Cronbach's alpha was 0.93. Descriptive statistics and inferential statistical methods including one-sample T-TEST and independent and Kolmograph Smirnov were used to describe the data using SPSS.V.16 software. The results show that the quality of life and general health of women participating in public sport and its related domains, namely physical health, mental health, social relations and environmental health, are better than the quality of life of non-participating women in public sport. The results also showed that there is a significant difference between physical and mental health of women participating in non-participating sports in Ardabil and that women participating in community-based sports had better physical health than non-participating women. The research is in line with the findings of the research by Weilman et al. (2005), Macaulay & Morris (2007), Sandra (2007) and Ramadan Nejad, preacher Mousavi and Mokhtari (2010); 1999) emphasizes the lack of correlation between physical activity and quality of life, which is inconsistent with the present study. This discrepancy may be due to the inconsistency of measurement conditions such as environmental and geographical conditions. Public exercise and physical activity play a vital role in people's physical health and are a vital element in today's societies that enhance quality of life and physical health. Disease and disability caused by inactivity increases human suffering and damages human quality of life
