It is a common assumption that sport is good for us and that participation in sport embodies public health benefits. With sport being increasingly used to deliver public health interventions worldwide, this book critically examines the rationale and evidence for sport as a public health policy tool. It looks at sport interventions across the lifespan, for biological, psychological and social benefits, including those that utilise a settings based approach to health promotion such as professional sport clubs. Drawing on cutting-edge research which examines policy and practice at community and elite levels, this is important reading for anybody working in sport development or public health.
