Sports Tourism: participants, policy and providers is an unparalleled text that explains sports tourism as a social, economic and cultural phenomenon that stems from the unique interaction of activity, people and place. Unlike other texts, it established sports tourism as a unique area that produces its own unique issues, concerns and controversies.

The text tackles these issues from three viewpoints:

* participants: examining the profiles, motivations and behaviour patterns of sports tourists to create a typology of participants

* policy: analyses the response by policy makers to this phenomenon and the problems of achieving integration between two sectors with historically different cultures

* providers: their motivations, aims, objectives and strategies

Now in its second edition the text has been further developed to include material on cutting-edge developments in the field and is illustrated by all new case studies including a chapter on cycling tourism and North American professional team sports.

Sports Tourism: participants, policy and providers is an essential text for anybody studying this unique topic.

* Completely revised with cutting edge new material

* Illustrated with all new international case studies

* Further development of theoretical frameworks established by first edition
