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 establishes 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 participation model
* 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 new and extended case studies including a brand new case study on cycling tourism.
