Equality of Opportunity in Sport

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter considers issues that arise when we consider participation in sport from the perspective of justice or fairness. What does it mean to say that people should have equality of opportunity in sport? What opportunities should we aim to equalise, and why is equal opportunity in sport important? It analyses these issues in relation to recreational/mass participation sport and in relation to elite sport. It is shown that sport actualises a number of questions of fair equality of opportunity and that many of these are complex and difficult to resolve.
