Taking part in a sport means that one must acquire the relevant skills: mental, physical and strategic. This book presents a new perspective on the role of skills, knowledge and intentionality in sporting contexts, examining how these skills and practical `know how' can be perfected to a level of expertise. Contributors study broader trends of how we can best understand the role of skills, as well as using case studies of expertise to add depth and nuance to existing scholarship - rope skipping and parkour are both analysed. In addition, this book looks to the future, discussing how sports and the relevant skills may take new directions, influenced by entrepreneurial game changers.This book was originally published as a special issue of Sport, Ethics and Philosophy.
