Abstract

Technology is arguably a prerequisite of sport. Although it might be possible to imagine informal play or games without it, it is far more difficult to conceive of technology free sport as it is constructed today. Whilst many think of sports technology as the latest cutting edge equipment, such as goal-line technology, altitude chambers and biometric tracking devices, most of the technology in sport is much older and simpler, such as balls, racquets, footwear, goalposts and netting. This paper will attempt to outline how technology can be defined, how it affects the nature of sporting competition and whether limits should be placed on its use.
