The study of built environments such as gymnasiums, football stadiums, swimmimg pools and skating rinks can provide unique information about the historical enclosure of the gendered and sexualised body, the body's capabilities, needs and desires, and illuminate the tensions between the globalising tendencies of sport and the importance of local culture and a sense of place.
This collection uses spatial concepts and examples to examine the nature and development of sporting practices. This is a pioneering work on the changing landscape of sporting life, and is likely to become a classic text for students of sport.
