CHANGES IN SUPPLY AND DEMAND

Case study: DECLINING SEASIDE TOURISM IN BLACKPOOL, UK

In Britain the first health resorts were inland health spas, towns and villages that contained local mineral waters. Until the 19th Century coastal areas in the UK were associated with fear and repulsion, associated with smuggling, shipwrecks and invasion. The arrival of the railways in the 1830s connected coastal areas with large urban centres and they then became very popular.

These teams are broadly divided into two partsWestern Conference and Eastern Conference. These groups are further sub-divided into divisions.

These groups & sub groups cannot be classified depending upon their power or authority since they all have got equal rights and power. Thus, there cannot be various levels among these teams. However, these can still be arranged in a systematic manner in a hierarchical format to understand the exact arrangement.

  2. Study the hierarchy diagram. Make your own version.

"For one named sports league you have studied, describe the hierarchy of its teams. (4 marks)"

exam question:

Referring to a national sports league you have studied, explain the factors that have determined the home location of its teams. [6 marks]

Mark Scheme

Answers will vary depending upon the sport chosen and its context but must examine a sports league of national importance. Factors are likely to include:

  • population density,
  • socio-economic factors,
  • cultural and historical factors,
  • government and private investment, and
  • proximity to competing teams.

There are other valid responses that should be credited.
