Sports Facilities for Schools in Developing Countries. An Inventory of Experience and Proposals for Future Projects. Educational Studies and Documents No. 8.
Scriven, F. B.
Aimed at encouraging developing countries to make better use of local sporting traditions and locally available materials, this study reviews existing information on the design of facilities for sport and physical education programs and outlines a handbook that could serve as a guide to the production of those facilities. The assessment of the existing knowledge of the planning and design of sports facilities included, in part, a questionnaire survey of the problems facing constructors of these facilities (sent in 1963 and 1967-68 to correspondents in 43 countries); the technical detailing of several installations of particular interest that represent solutions to the problems outlined; a review of the literature on the subject; the identification, classification, and annotation of relevant documentation; and the compilation of document availability. This publication is meant as a blueprint for future research, publications, and pilot projects in member States in drawing up national guidelines or directives for sports facilities planning and for identifying desirable experimental undertakings. Appendixes contain addresses of organizations where technical information may be obtained and a bibliography. (Photographs may reproduce poorly.) (Author/MLF)
