The people of the U.K. are the POPULATION, and the people you called are the SAMPLE.

Because it would be impossible or inconvenient to call every single person in the country (the entire POPULATION) to find out how popular the racket sports are, you take a SAMPLE by only calling some of them. Provided the sample is randomly selected, and provided the sample is representative of the population as a whole, you can draw statistical conclusions from the data you obtain.
