The Handbook has established itself as the major reference work on sport. Together with the second volume on indoor sports, this second edition confirms its place as the most comprehensive and authoritative manual on sports building design ever published.
Design of sports facilities offers a particularly high profile challenge to architects and designers. Few other types of public buildings or facilities are likely to be used by such a high proportion of the population. The first volume of the Sports Council Handbook covers the requirement of outdoor sports in clearly laid-out studies, each illustrated with photographs and/or diagrams. As well as containing the latest internationally agreed dimensions for playing areas, the Handbook gives guidance to architects and others on the design of the whole facility, from structural considerations to staffing. It aims to provide complete information on the design and dimensions of over forty outdoor sports that now enjoy considerable popularity.
