Tourism and Cricket PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tourism and Cricket free pdf 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. The 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. This book will appeal to researchers, students and teachers in tourism, sport and leisure.
