Sport finds its purpose

by Liz Terry

What a journey sport has been on over the last 50 years: from amateur to professional and from the private school to the mainstream. It's been quite a ride and we've essentially seen it democratised. Now sport is taking another giant evolutionary leap forward and joining the mainstream health and social agendas with the publication of the government’s report, Sporting Future: A New Strategy for an Active Nation, which lays out plans for the sector.

Linear parks enrich us

by Liz Terry

When Meg Daly broke both her arms in a bike accident, she was forced to use Miami’s Metrorail and then walk under the raised train tracks to get to physiotherapy sessions. The path beneath the tracks was wide and shaded and as she walked, it occurred to her that the land was a precious, under-used resource and the idea for the Miami Underline – a 16km linear park and urban trail – was born.

Passive to active: spa gets sporty

by Liz Terry

In the 2015 edition of Spa Business magazine’s annual spa and wellness trends report – Spa Foresight™ – we highlighted spa and sport as being an exciting growth area for the industry. The majority of spas have traditionally focused on offering passive experiences, with only destination spas programming in active pursuits, such as hiking, but we expect this to change rapidly over the next decade as millennials come on stream as spa consumers.

Active every day

by Liz Terry

Sometimes in the history of an industry, there comes a tipping point which propels it into the stratosphere. It can be anything from the advent of a new technology, to the launch of a new company or the arrival of a groundbreaking piece of legislation. [more...]

Killer sport

by Liz Terry

The FIFA corruption scandal has brought the issue of Qatar's hosting of the Football World Cup to the top of the agenda again and – along with the allegations of bribery – has highlighted the death toll which has occurred to date during the building of the country's World Cup stadia. [more...]

Quidditch hits the mainstream

by Liz Terry

Quidditch. You may think this is a fantasy sport played only in the pages of a Harry Potter novel, but our reporters found the sport has been enthusiastically adopted by muggles (see our feature in Sports Management 2015 issue 1 on page 62). [more...]

Adding value

by Liz Terry

Leisure is emerging as a powerful anchor for residential and retail developments, as well as adding significant bottom line value to a wide range of other development types. [more...]

School sport - could try harder

by Liz Terry

In my mid-teens I went to a new school which turned out to have a tradition of playing tricks on new students. Within a couple of days of starting, someone dropped into a conversation that there were mixed showers after PE. [more...]

Women (and girls) in sport

by Liz Terry

In the latest issue of Sports Management we focus on women in sport, with a cover celebrating the amazing Jo Pavey and her inspiring gold medal performance in the 10,000m at the European Athletics Championships in Zurich. She powered to the title aged 40 –the oldest competitor ever to win in Europe – and only a year after giving birth to her second child. It was lump in the throat stuff. [more...]

Sport CSR is growing fast

by Liz Terry

With so much focus on the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Olympic and Paralympic sports, the UK’s powerful network of sports governing bodies and voluntary sports clubs, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this represents pretty much the full extent of meaningful sporting activity in the UK. [more...]

It’s time to build wellness cities

by Liz Terry

Earlier this month, news broke that the UK government is planning to build two new Garden Cities in the south of England to ease a housing shortage. The original Garden Cities - conceived in 1898 by Sir Ebenezer Howard - were planned, self-contained communities surrounded by green space, containing homes, industry and agriculture. Plans for the new settlements seem likely to be guided by this philosophy. [more...]

After decades of lobbying, Europe's getting serious about the benefits of fitness and sport

by Liz Terry

When the EU published its European Union Work Plan for Sport 2011-2014, many thought it would gather dust on a shelf in Brussels. However, much work has been done since on policy in this area – including consulting with allied disciplines like health and transport – and Europe is shaping up to be a great champion for the sport, fitness and wellness industries. [more...]

Banging heads together

by Liz Terry

The recent report – Keeping the flame alive; the Olympic and Paralympic legacy – from the House of Lords Select Committee, was produced following a pretty exhaustive investigation involving 53 live witnesses and written submissions from 67 organisations and individuals. [more...]

Physical literacy

by Liz Terry

As we celebrate the first anniversary of London 2012 it's a good time to reflect on progress. Recent research by ComRes for the BBC found more than two thirds of the UK public feel the £8.77bn cost of the London 2012 Olympics was worth it. [more...]

Sport and peace

by Liz Terry

In the latest issue of Sports Management we examine the work of the peace and sport movement and look at examples of projects which are bringing unity to some of the most challenging places on earth (see page 42). [more...]
