Abstract


This study seeks to examine teachers' attitudes towards sports tourism as well as their perceptions of the negative effects of tourism. In order to determine the attitudes and perceptions of the teachers, the differentiation status of the participants in terms of some demographic variables was examined. As a result of the research, it was determined that the scores of participants' attitudes towards sports tourism were high and that the average score of the economic sub-scale was high in terms of the perceptions of the negative effects of tourism, while the average scores of the environmental and socio-cultural sub-scales were at a moderate level. Significant relationships were found in terms of branch and age variables included in the attitude scale towards sports tourism while there was no significant difference in terms of gender and marital status variables. Besides, while there was no statistically significant difference in the economic and environmental sub-scales in terms of gender and marital status variables in the perception scale for the negative effects of tourism, a statistically significant difference was found in the socio-cultural sub-scale. While there was no significant difference in the branch variable in the economic, environmental, and socio-cultural sub-scales of the perception scale for the negative effects of tourism, a statistically significant difference was found in terms of the age variable. As a result of the correlation analysis, a negative, low-level, and statistically significant relationship was found between the economic, environmental, and socio-cultural sub-scales in terms of independent variables under the perception scale of the negative effects of tourism and the scores of the attitude scale towards sports tourism. Thus, teachers' attitudes towards sports tourism and their perceptions of the negative effects of tourism were determined in terms of different variables.
