Creativity is an essential component of sport performance. The player who can make decisions that are both unexpected ' and therefore less easily predicted by his/her opponent ' and appropriate is the player who is likely to be successful. In this ground-breaking new book Daniel Memmert explores the concept of tactical creativity, introducing a new theoretical framework based on extensive empirical research.
