  • Information


This book is the first to focus on the relationship between tourism and cricket.

The pattern of cricket as a sport and as a tourist attraction is highly dynamic.

This volume examines how cricket as a participant and spectator sport generates diverse tourism to both major and peripheral locations.

It looks at the ways in which cricket's extended duration (compared to other sports) creates a different dynamic in terms of visitor-host interaction.

It also considers how following cricket as a tourist and a participant causes exposure to unique pressures and results in unique behaviour.

The book will appeal to researchers, students and teachers in tourism, sport and leisure.
