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...]

Active and wellness design

by Liz Terry

The spa industry is growing more quickly than ever before, with roll-outs globally in all sectors. There’s never been a better time both to create wellness environments and to adopt green building methods to improve the health of both customers and the planet. [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...]

Harnessing social media power

by Liz Terry

Spa and wellness businesses that create communities of loyal fans and advocates around their brands have a huge competitive advantage and social media offers a wealth of powerful free tools which enable this. [more...]

Is the tide turning on the UK tourism boom?

by Kurt Janson

Over the last four years the tourism industry has been at the forefront of the UK’s economic recovery. It has generated a third of all additional jobs in the country, provided a boost to export earnings and helped maintain regional economies. [more...]

Confidence improves but fragility remains

by Peter Ducker

For the UK hotel market, at least, the recession is fast receding. The latest performance data shows average increases in RevPAR of 20 per cent across the UK, with our 12 largest cities recording growth for what was the fourth consecutive quarter. [more...]

A new call to action

by Kate Cracknell

Young or old, disabled or able-bodied, fit or unfit, the brief is clear: we should all be active on a daily basis. This is the unambiguous and very welcome message from Public Health England (PHE) in Everybody Active, Every Day – its recently published national framework designed to combat inactivity. Hear, hear PHE. In their bold simplicity, the four words ‘everybody active, every day’ become more than just the name of the framework – they become a rallying cry for the fitness sector as a whole. [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...]

Being socially useful

by Kate Cracknell

Has your organisation recognised the value of being genuinely useful to its community – not settling for ‘doing good by helping people get healthy’, but actually putting community interests at the heart of the business? [more...]

International water safety event sees worldwide growth

by Aleatha Ezra

According to the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) UK, "accidental drowning causes around 400 UK deaths every year, the equivalent of one person drowning every 20 hours. Thousands more suffer near drowning experiences, some resulting in life changing injuries. Drowning is still the third highest cause of accidental death in children in the UK." [more...]

Embracing active design

by Kate Cracknell

People should be active every day, with opportunities to do so designed into the very fabric of our environments and our daily lives. That was the clear message of last month’s inspirational Active by Design Summit, organised by the UK’s Design Council. So how might this look in practice, and what does it mean for health club operators? [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...]

Here comes China

by Liz Terry

Speaking at the opening of the recent IAAPA Asian Attractions Expo in Beijing, Paul Noland, president and CEO of IAAPA, said the Chinese market is the fastest growing in the world, with at least 59 theme parks under development, probably more. [more...]

Obesity responsibility

by Kate Cracknell

How should we define obesity – is it a disease, a disability or a lifestyle condition? And why does the definition matter? [more...]

Trailblazing

by Liz Terry

In Leisure Management 2014 issue 3, we celebrate the disruptors – innovators who are coming into the leisure industry with new ideas which are innovative enough to bring about radical change in the way things are done in their sector – whether it be spa, health and fitness, sport or hospitality.
