Purpose: To develop a Health-Belief Scale on Sportive Recreational Activities (HBSSRA) and to analyse validity and reliability of the scale. Methods: Data were found as suitable for factor analysis and exploratory factor analysis was used to analyze construct validity and factor structure of HBSSRA. Cronbach Alfa, internal consistency coefficient, test-retest, paired-t and Pearson correlation tests were used for reliability of data. Results: Total variance in the scale was calculated as 61%. For reliability analysis, Cronbach Alfa internal consistency coefficient was calculated as 0.88 for all items. Conclusions: Finally, a valid and reliable likert-type scale with 21 items and S sub-dimensions was developed to evaluate Health Belief in the society as to Sportive Recreational Activities.
