Quick Reference

A practice or activity, usually of a group or a network, in which the values expressed by the participants are inherently critical of or out of line with the dominant or mainstream culture. Contra-cultural sport forms might be created by changes in the law and legislation, as happened with forms of folk football in early industrial Britain; or may be connected to recurrent social habits such as gambling.
