1) Using the full spectrum of segmentation variables, describe how Sports England has segmented the sports market?

In order to understand the British people’s attitudes and motivations about sports, Sport England has built 19 sporting segments all around the United Kingdom to target its customers in the sports market.

In the segmentation process Sport England worked closely with Experian Business Strategies consulting group. Sport England along with the help of the Experian Group analysed data of the English people aged 18 and older. They collected and collated information about specific sports involvement; desire to do sports and the obstacles they faced in doing sports. The analysis further included the collection of data on media consumption and communication channels, social capital, health indicators, and involvement in wider cultural activities.

Sport England completed this survey with the collaboration of Action People Survey. This was one of the largest ever sports survey conducted and carried out in Europe by the company. The survey provided Sport England with the levels of participation of people in different groups in the community specifically.

The company had designed the questionnaire to find out and analyze the broad range of demographic information, such as people’s genders, social classes, ethnicity, household structures, ages and disabilities.

Their survey also included how involved people in each segment were in other recreational activities. This segmentation process allowed them to understand the top sports that people want to involve themselves in and helped them to identify the characteristics of their target groups for projects and initiatives.

An example of their successful market segmentation policy is South Gloucestershire Leisure’s reopening of a refurbished leisure center in the year 2007. With the help of their market…...

Even in the time when the Romans came to England people were playing games like Draughts in the taverns. In the 1495 this culture was widespread and so the King forbid this kind of indoor games because of the well liked reason that it would keep the men away from their archery training. That prohibition had no long success and did not last for a long time. Over the years many card and dice games became very popular, but also the board games were still popular. In addition sports for noblemen like Bowls became well-liked pub sports. Today there are numerous of pub sports and some of them are explained in the following paragraphs. 4.4. Bowls Bowls Bowls is very similar to Bocce. Two bowlers are playing against each other. The game is divided into so called ends and normally every player has four balls in each end. The balls of the opponents differ in the colours. The bowlers must roll the balls as near as possible to the target called the Jack. The special thing about a Bowls ball is that they are flattened and that one side is a bit heavier than the other and so the ball rolls on a crooked line. The scoring system is equal to the scoring system of Curling. The ball which lies closest to the Jack at the end of the end scores. Additionally every ball of the...

The board currently consists of four representatives from FIFA and one representative from each of the four British associations.[26] Today, football is played at a professional level all over the world. Millions of people regularly go to football stadiums to follow their favourite teams,[27] while billions more watch the game on television or on the internet.[28] A very large number of people also play football at an amateur level. According to a survey conducted by FIFA published in 2001, over 240 million people from more than 200 countries regularly play football.[29] Football has the highest global television audience in sport.[30] In many parts of the world football evokes great passions and plays an important role in the life of individual fans, local communities, and even nations. The Côte d'Ivoire national football team helped secure a truce to the nation's civil war in 2006[31] and it helped further reduce tensions between government and rebel forces in 2007 by playing a match in the rebel capital of Bouaké, an occasion that brought both armies together peacefully for the first time.[32] By contrast, football is widely considered to be the final proximate cause in the Football War in June 1969 between El Salvador and Honduras.[33] The sport also...

Not only will people sometimes stand up for what they believe, they will also to believe in what they have stood up for. However, if cooperative actions in the sports team are disturbed by the separate training sessions, the team members will feel distant from each other thus lead to the lack of confidence and feelings of worry even before the game starts. Mutual liking is important for good team cooperation and performance during the competition, if it cannot be well-established, the consequences will be seen in the results of games. Usually, a...

...SPORT OBREMEYER Sport Obermeyer designs and sells high-end skiwear from Colorado. Their products are sold in US departmental stores and specialty ski shops. Most of its production is carried out in honk Kong and china by its partner, Obersport. Annual production capacity is approximately 200,000 units. The minimum production quantity in Hong Kong is 600 units and 1200 units in china. They earn a 24% profit on whole sale price on every product and losses 8% on discounted sales. There are many challenges strangling this company as they serve fashion wear which are highly unpredictable. They have long lead times due to uncertain forecasts and geographical distance. The life cycle of their products are short leaving no time for comfortable manufacturing process. They have a seasonal demand with most of their sales happening during one quarter of the year. In case of stock outs they lose their 24% margin and make 8% losses on over stocked goods or marked down prices. This results in high holding costs. This highly volatile demand requires them to produce in two phases. One batch of production is to be carried out based on initial forecast and the other batch after the las vegas event requiring highly flexible supply and manufacturing process.

...Sport Management We were given the task to explore three websites that define their own version of what sport management actually in tales and how it is applied in the real world as we know it. The first website we were ask to look through for a definition is called the North American Society for Sport Management. When looking through this site I found they stated that NASSM is actively involved in supporting and assisting professionals working in the fields of sport, leisure and recreation. The purpose of the North American Society for Sport Management is to promote, stimulate, and encourage study, research, scholarly writing, and professional development in the area of sport management - both theoretical and applied aspects (North American Society For Sport Management, 2013). They also have a journal with a mission statement stating; The Journal of Sport Management publishes research and scholarly review articles; short reports on replications, test development, and data reanalysis (Research Notes); editorials that focus on significant issues pertaining to sport management (Sport Management Perspectives); articles aimed at strengthening the link between sport management theory and sport management practice (From the Field); journal abstracts (Sport Management Digest); book reviews (Off the Press); and news items of interest to professionals in sport management (Management Memos) (North American Society For Sport Management, 2013).

... demonstrates a strong correlation. Why is this? Obviously the national debt plays in increasingly important role in the market economy. What it all comes down to is money. Capitalists love Sport. Political Factors Modern politics owes much to the animal kingdom. Comparing international relations since the end of the century can be like observing the two, equally popular approaches to Sport. If the reader is unaware of these, they need only to turn on the television, or pick up a newspaper or popular magazine. We cannot talk of Sport and politics without remembering the words of the famous political Noah Tuigamala 'Political idealists must ideally deal, for I daily list my ideals politically.' [2] He was first introduced to Sport by his mother. I feel strongly that if politicians spent less time thinking about Sport and put more effort into their family life, that we would have a very different country. Is Sport politically correct, in every sense? Each man, woman and to a lesser extent, child, must make up their own mind. Conclusion To conclude, Sport may not be the best thing since sliced bread, but it's still important. It questions, invades where necessary, though Sport brings with it obvious difficulties, it is truly Sport. I will leave you with the words of Hollywood's Leonardo Malkovitch: 'It's been nice educating you.' [3] [1] Traditional - possibly first said by King Arthor... but probably not.

Sport Leader

...Awrangzib Hashimi ST: Sports Facility Design & Mgt Professor Keith Bosley Choose an individual in sports who you think is a good leader and write two to three paragraphs about the type of leader they are and the characteristics that make them a good leader. A successful sport leader has the same positive characteristics as other good leaders. A sport leader obtains an expert skill level in their field and an enthusiastic understanding of their sport, other team leaders and coaches in other sports. Moreover, a sport leader possesses effective interpersonal skills of being able to communicate efficiently, motivate and appreciate his team members. Also, he must be responsible, flexible and patient while maintaining equal amount of integrity he expect from his team members and other sports leaders. In sports, typically the team leader is the coach, who is respected by other team members, not only because of his abilities and skills in sports but also for his individual qualities as a leader, such as responsibility, work ethic and attitude with team members. Julio Velasco is an Argentinean professional volleyball coach who had led the Italian men’s national team to many successes in international volleyball matches. Later, he became the coach for Italian women’s volleyball team. A few years ago on 2011 he has started his leadership duty with Iran men’s national team.

...Case Study What is the core role of lifesaving clubs and agencies? Its mission statement states in part that its role is ‘to lead, support, collaborate, with national and international organisations engaged in drowning prevention, water safety, water rescue, lifesaving, lifeguarding, and lifesaving sport’ (www.ilsf.org). What are their likely source of income, and why? Lifesaving clubs and agencies rely heavily on the supply of public funding by the government. The costs associated with the development of sport such as building or improvement of facilities is usually funded by the government. The government/State heavily funds lifesaving clubs and agencies. It is because the State believes that it can improve the well being of society by its various interventions. (Hoye, Russel. 2006, p. 20). This type of intervention falls under the neo-liberalism ideology. It was found that ‘neo-liberals believe government should not engage directly in most economic activity, but rather provide only base level infrastructure, legislative guidelines within which private business can thrive’ (Hoye, Russel. 2006, p. 27). How feasible would it to get the people being rescued to actually fund the operations of lifesaving clubs and agencies? It will not be feasible for the people being rescued to fund the operations because the cost of running the lifesaving clubs and agencies are huge. The amount of money channelled to the lifesaving clubs and agencies by the State to the...

...Barriers to participation for 3 target groups and all the stages of the sports participation pyramid I am going to explain the barriers to participation from 3 different target groups at each stage of the sport development pyramid. My 3 target groups are Over 50s, Women and Young people. Over 50s is a target group because there is more over 50s playing sport now than ever before, this is because people are living longer and wish to keep fit and active. Young people is a target group because if people can get young kids active and give them a chance to do sport at a young age then it is more likely that they will carry on with sport and go up through the sports participation pyramid. Women is a target group because although traditionally women participate less in sport, the number of women in sport has gone up in the past few years. From 2005 to 2008 the overall women participating in sport went up from 2.57 Million to 2.81 Million (12.3% increase). Also more women are playing male dominated sport like Rugby and Football. Target group 1 – Over 50s At the foundation stage for Over 50s there is not any facility’s that will teach the basic skills for a sport. For most sports such as Crown green Bowling participants will go straight into the participation stage. In the participation stage for Over 50s a barrier would be cost of travel. If a person cannot drive then the cost of the buss maybe too much and if it is too far to walk the participant may have to stop...

If it’s playing the game or even if it’s watching the game. Playing the game is what I have always loved doing because I love the sport so much. From being a young boy kicking a ball around the playing fields too now playing in competive matches weeks in and weeks out. When I am playing the game I get a real buzz from it. Their is no better feeling in the world whenever you score a goal in a match. From the moment the ball leaves your feet and travels into the net. It could complete your day and make you feel so happy. Playing football always gives you something too look forward too. You always want too no when the next match is our when the next training session is. This gives you a good feel off exictment. The best way I enjoy football is having a kick about with your mates in a soical area. As we did in class last Monday whenever the whole class traveled to Bedford Park too have a kick about. Wakening up in the morning knowing you had a kick about with a bunch off lads instead off having to go to a lecture brightens up your morning, this makes you feel good. During the game when you are playing you have a huge smile on your face and its all about having so much fun. It makes you feel great.

... for all to find a place even if you do posses a ticket. Anyone who has gone to a match is used to being herded into the minimum number of turnstiles by officers who seem less than thrilled to be in their positions. Would you be happy to be the one officer who is responsible for frisking the 20,000+ fans coming through your section? I assume not. Afterwards when you finally get inside the stadium and manage to find a seat you cant fail to see the brilliance of our security apparatus where the perimeter of every section of fans is occupied by a row of riot police. Lets compare the journey of Cairo stadium to that of Wembley Stadium of London. Forget the fact that Wembley cost over one billion British pounds, because in the end the model for stadiums in Europe fit a similar pattern. In order to enter the stadium you must circle the perimeter until you find which of the 14 turnstiles you need to be going through. This should not be difficult, as it will be marked on your ticket. Once you enter the first stage you must then, depending which level you are on, find the gate, of which there are almost 50 per level, which will lead you to your section of seating. From that point its as simple as finding your row and number, like going to a cinema. And behold not a single police officer in sight after passing the first turnstile. No riot police assuming everyone is a hooligan, simply a handful of stewards facing outwards for the individual pitch invaders. The distinct lack of a...

...david Ethics in Sport Part 1: Altitude Training Altitude training, also known as hypoxic training, involves exercising in, living in or otherwise breathing oxygen reduced air for the purpose of improved athletic performance, pre-acclimatization to altitude and/or physical wellness. Traditionally, individuals had to travel to or live at high elevations to obtain the benefits of this phenomenon. I already use something similar to that, the Elevation mask when I run and workout. That is the main thing you use for altitude training to improve your breathing. http://www.hypoxico.com/ Part 2: Altitude Tents By sleeping in a tent at a simulated high altitude, you reduce the amount of oxygen you are able to breathe in, which forces the body to increase its red blood cell count. Then, when you train back at sea level, you are able to compete more effectively because a greater amount of oxygen is now being delivered to your muscles than before. They can be pretty expensive, ranging from $450 to $500 a month or you can buy for $4,000. I sure wouldn’t pay that much for that, I’ll just continue to use the Elevation Mask. http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/reviews/performance-products-and-services/altitude-tent-everest-summit-hypoxic-generator Part 3: Erythropoietin Erythropoietin-Red blood cells are produced in the bone marrow (the spongy tissue inside the bone).
