On discouraging environments in group contests : Specialization, demographic diversity and gender

Hendrik Sonnabend

This contribution empirically investigates adverse effects of uneven contests and negative feedback in group contests in the field. Using a unique data set from professional beach volleyball, the analysis reveals that more specialized teams perform better in unbalanced match-ups, whereas demographic diversity helps to overcome setbacks. In addition, considerable gender differences can be identified.
