The findings have been published by GolfSupport.com , which has crunched numbers put together by the London Assembly.
It showed Barking and Dagenham was the worst London borough for inactivity, with 67% of residents not taking part in any sports whatsoever.
Camden was the most active, with only 35.7% of residents not participating in any sports.
GolfSupport.com also conducted a survey to find out why Londoners are not actively engaging and participating in sports.
From 1,426 responses, it was found that "pre-occupied/ busy with work" was the most cited reason as to why Londoners are not playing sports at 32%.

Gary Swift, GolfSupport.com managing director, said: “The fast-paced nature of London unfortunately translates to its residents, who are consistently preoccupied with work matters and social engagements.
“As a result, they have little or no time for physical activity. Whilst the Olympics did initially surge sports participation numbers, its seems the nostalgia is now stagnating.
“To counteract this, there needs to be a new and creative approach to illustrate the long-term benefits of sport participation on physical as well as mental health”.
