The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between leisure involvement and subjective well-being and clarify the moderating effect of spousal support in this relationship. A total of 254 questionnaires were collected from a sample of players of slow pitch softball. Structural equation modelling was utilised to estimate a model that linked leisure involvement and spousal support to subjective well-being. As expected, the results show that a recreation having greater leisure involvement leads to a high level of subjective well-being. The findings further show that spousal support moderate the effect of leisure involvement on subjective well-being, indicating that greater spousal support is associated with a higher likelihood that leisure involvement will improve subjective well-being.

Key words: Leisure involvement; Spousal support; Subjective well-being; Slow pitch softball
