The lack of women in senior management\ud functions in sport may in part be attributed to dominant\ud discursive managerial practices in sport organizations. The\ud purpose of this study is to explore ways in which the\ud discourses and their subtexts used by directors of Dutch\ud national sport organizations to talk about their work, sustain\ud homologous reproduction. Close reading of the transcripts\ud of interviews by both researchers followed by a continuous\ud cycle of data reduction and verification and researcher\ud agreement enabled four dominant discursive themes to\ud emerge. We show how an overlap of various discursive\ud practices related to instrumentality, relationality, emotionality/\ud passion and homogeneity strengthen the gendered nature\ud of senior managerial work in large sport organizations
