Tasmanians are becoming more aware of the physical, social and psychological benefits to be gained through sport and recreation. These benefits are not confined to individuals; there are important social and economic benefits that extend to the wider community. The Tasmanian sport and recreation industry consists of state, regional and local community sport and recreation groups, facility providers, commercial operators and both local and state government bodies.
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. For further information about the Department of Economic Development or Sport and Recreation Tasmania, see http://www.development.tas.gov.au.
