Sport and recreation provides social, economic and personal benefits for communities and individuals. Tasmanians are becoming more aware of these benefits that can be gained from participating in and attending organised sport.
The Department of Economic Development's division of Sport and Recreation Tasmania works with four sectors within the industry: sport, fitness, community recreation and outdoor recreation.
