    Useful tool for practitioners working with athletes experiencing mental health issues

    Mental health issues among elite sports performers are finally being talked about quite openly; Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka are the latest examples.

Our reviewer Frida Wågan has read an important contribution to the field.

    An unremarkable but well-crafted story of loss, sport and charity, that pulls at the heartstrings

    The annual Hot Undies Run benefits the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Undies for Everyone, in Houston TX.
    Yet another benefit of sport and physical activity, negating the traditional understanding of “le sport pour le sport”, is the effects of combining it with charity. This is the subject of a monograph by Catherine Palmer, Fitness Philanthropy: Sport, Charity and Everyday Giving (Cambridge Scholars Publishing), which Aurélien Daudi has read on our behalf. His review problematizes the concept of fitness philanthropy while acknowledging its healing potential and other positive aspects.

    Sport and alcohol – two popular social lubricants in a sticky relationship

    Sport and alcohol go way back in sport history, hand in hand. Drink manufacturers sponsor sport, sports people drink and endorse various alcoholic beverages. Is it a sort of symbiosis? Anyway, it’s been the subject of a number of academic studies, the latest being a collected volume by Sarah Gee, Sport, Alcohol and Social Inquiry: A Global Cocktail (Emerald), which is reviewed here by Alan Bairner – and “there could have been few better choices”.

    Not a final statement but a starting point: timely and extremely useful handbook for qualitative sport studies

    Just in time for the publication of Mark Brooke’s review of the Routledge Handbook of Qualitative Research in Sport and Exercise, edited by Brett Smith & Andrew C. Sparkes, Routledge chose to release the paperback edition, thereby decreasing the RRP from £190 to £40 – which is good, given that the book, according to our reviewer, is a valuable tool for social and cultural science scholars in the field of sport and exercise.
