This paper will analyse two Capital Intensive Sports: scuba diving and golf. The paper proposes an exploratory analytical framework for the analysis of Capital Intensive Sports. It also examines the characteristics of scuba diving and golf, broad patterns in their patenting activity and aspects of their related infrastructure. Evidence from literature on leisure sports points to significant informal participation of users in early innovation, particularly among new sports. Based on this evidence, the study identifies hypotheses for the study of the innovation sources in both sports.
