Regulation in Sport, International Journal of the History of Sport, 24 (7), pp.
|Abstract: ||Sport today is a rule-governed practice: constitutive rules, both prescriptive
and proscriptive, define required equipment and facilities as well as setting
the formal rules of play; auxiliary rules specify and control eligibility: and
regulatory rules place restraints on behaviour independent of the sport itself.
This article offers a broad sweep examination of the historical process of rule
development in sport including an assessment of the influence over time of
gambling, fair play ideology, economic pressures, technological developments and
legal intervention. En route a seven-stage scheme of constitutive rule
development is postulated which it is hoped will set a research agenda for
sports historians to test with case studies of particular sports.|
