Can sport and physical activity (PA) be used to improve the communities we live in? How do community groups manage facilities that provide sport and PA?
Bringing together academics and practitioners with expertise in sport management, sport development, the sociology of sport, PA programming and community coaching, this book outlines best practice and explores contemporary issues relating to:
- Community enhancement through sport and PA;
- Leadership, enterprise and innovation;
- Budgeting and decision making;
- Event and facility management;
- Corporate social responsibility (CSR);
- Monitoring and evaluation.
The book is divided into three sections: part I provides an introduction to developing and managing community sport.

'Managing and developing community sport' is written for sport management practitioners or students hoping to work in community-level sport.
