    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.

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.
