The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 covers different types of sports facilities, sports provision within buildings, the significance of sports facilities in urban developments and the exciting possibilities of sports-led urban regeneration. Part 2 covers sports facilities planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance. Part 3 is about the technologies that are making such facilities increasingly desirable places to be. While Part 1 is sports-specific, the content of Parts 2 and 3 is of wider application and implication.
