There is no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the ways we socialise during our leisure time. This edited collection aims to critically explore international leisure during the pandemic by seeking to understand how changes in leisure have led to transformations in the ways we have had to ‘do’ and ‘redo’ activities, such as incorporating digitalisation and distancing measures, as well as dealing with restrictions on social interaction, gatherings, and cultural activities. This has caused people worldwide to change their patterns of behaviour, especially when it comes to leisure experiences and the leisure environment, leading to critical re-evaluation of what leisure is and means in contemporary societies.
