Throughout this book it has been maintained that the unique phenomenon of sports tourism arises from the interaction of activity, people and place. The participation chapters, particularly Chapter 3, discussed how activities, people and places contribute to the experiences of sports tourists. Such experiences and their role in the trip decision-making process discussed in Chapter 4 led to the development of a Revised Sports Tourism Participation Model in Chapter 5 (see Figure 5.5). As noted in the previous chapter, this participation model is a useful tool in examining the provision strategies of sports tourism providers as it assists in segmenting the sports tourism market and identifying the role of sports tourism in the holiday decisionmaking process.
