Abstract: Social interaction is limited during imprisonment. Social exclusion hinders inmates’ social reintegration after release. It is widely believed that the impact of sports on social outcomes-cohesion and inclusion is greater than the limited evidence base suggests. The study employed experimental pretest-posttest control research design. This study was carried out over a 10 week period at the Ilesa prison in Osun State, Nigerian. 140 inmates were selected for the study. The respondents were grouped into four sports- athletics, badminton, table-tennis and volleyball. The social wellbeing domain aspect of the World Health Organization Quality of Life Scale (WHOQOL-BREF) was used for the study. The data collected were analysed with descriptive and inferential statistics. The study showed that there is a correlation between participation in athletics (r=0.272), badminton (r=.163), table tennis (r=.373) and volley ball (r=.248) which is significant at (P<.05). It was concluded that there is a social interactional effect of participation in different types of sport by inmates of Ilesa prison in Nigeria
