Front Cover
Elsevier/Butterworth Heinemann, 2004 - Business & Economics - 241 pages
Sports Tourism: participants, policy and providers 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.

* A unique text, covering the subject in unprecedented depth.
* Extended case study chapters provide practical illustrations of the conceptual frameworks and theories.
* Substantial areas of the book underpinned by extensive empirical data and primary research.
