Full Profile

Dr Sean Gammon is based in the Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise at the University of Central Lancashire. He has been writing and researching in sport tourism for over twenty years and managed the first under graduate degree programme on the subject (BA Hons Sport Tourism). Sean’s research interests mostly focus on sport tourist experiences, though more recently he has been exploring the breadth and significance of sports heritage in generating tourism (Gammon, 2015; Ramshaw and Gammon, 2015). In addition to his work in sport tourism, he continues to contribute to the field of leisure studies, primarily focussing on the health giving properties of leisure states of mind (Gammon and Elkington, 2018, Gammon and Jarratt, 2018).
