Trends in Sport and Recreation

Participation in sport and recreation-based activities are changing at the grassroots and community level.

Australia's shifting demographics, increased use of technology, the shift away from organised, structured sports and the growth in eco-tourism have had a significant impact on the sport and recreation industry.

Understanding some of the trends in sport and recreation will help clubs and organisations provide meaningful and appropriate opportunities for participants.
