This chapter reflects on what the combination of essays in the book "Sport-for-Development: Critical Perspectives" has revealed about the nuances of theory and praxis in sport-for-development (S4D). This is done against a background where each of the chapters under ‘Framework’, while focused primarily on conceptual concerns, has also drawn upon experiences from field work. Similarly, each of the chapters under the ‘From the Field’ section, while focused primarily on programme delivery issues, has been informed by theoretical assumptions. Therefore, the final chapter allows for commentary within these two sections. In the process, it dwells upon opportunities and challenges for the S4D genre, including emerging trends with respect to critical engagement and reforms to practice.
