Book Description 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.
