What do we mean by sport and recreation?
Sport is physical activity participated in by individuals or teams that is organised, competitive, rule-bound and usually organisation-led via sports clubs, education providers or community groups, with volunteer support, or is commercially provided, for example, indoor cricket.
Recreation is physical activity undertaken by individuals, groups or teams to varying levels of physical exertion in their leisure time. It is done as part of living a healthy lifestyle for mental and physical wellbeing and enjoyment. It could include a social game of touch rugby in a park, biking a trail, going to the gym, kayaking on the harbour, going for a bush walk or children playing actively in their backyard.
The sport and recreation sector is very broad and is made up of individuals, organisations, businesses and agencies that either participate in, support, deliver, service, fund or promote sport and recreation opportunities.
