A & C Black produced a series of books on Games and Sports called Know the Game.
From their Website
"Know the Game" is the leading series of sports books in the UK — copies of the books have been in print for over 50 years. The books are written for everyone who wants to find out the basics of a sport — from children who are finding out about a sport for the first time to adults who want to remind themselves about how a certain sport is played.
The key to the success of this series is the quality of the material — each book is written by the governing body for the sport. This means that you can be sure that all the rules and advice that you read is correct, up to date and reflects current best practice in terms of teaching and coaching.
