The present paper investigates the contribution of several key variables to the inclination of adolescents to participate in leisure in the future, a variable which is coined here as participation disposition or (PD). This variable is distinguished from the commonly used variable leisure participation which is based on participation frequencies in past activities. By subjecting data collected from 7570 students attending primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong to analyses with Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), the relative strengths of Leisure Satisfaction, Leisure Attitude, Leisure Participation and Perceived Well-being in predicting participation disposition (PD) was established. In addition, results of the study indicate the relative contributions of Leisure Satisfaction, Leisure Attitude and Leisure Participation to Perceived Well-being of adolescents. The study suggests a holistic model which indicates the potential contribution of participation disposition to other variables related to leisure and well-being of people. Recommendations are made to investigate this model on a longitudinal basis.
