Sport and Recreation, Communities NSW

More people. More active. More often.

Sport and Recreation is part of Communities NSW which is an agency within the NSW Government, Australia.

Sport and Recreation is committed to providing and facilitating sport and recreation services for the people of NSW and its vision is of a community that uses sport and recreation to improve its well being.

We recognise that there's more to sport that just playing it. Sport and recreation play a vital role in binding our communities together, and participation in physical activity creates a broad range of benefits for all members of the community.

From developing the self-esteem of young people to maintaining the health and fitness of senior citizens, and nurturing talented athletes to improving everyone's enjoyment of life, we are concerned with the big picture gains of sport and recreation for all communities in NSW.
