Inclusive Bowling Clubs: Are you implementing best practice?

by BowlsSA1

With the World Singles Champion of Champions in Adelaide this week, we welcome the world’s best from 28 countries to the greens of the Adelaide Bowling Club.

Australia has a diverse multicultural population and sport participation in many of its regions reflects this diversity.  Sport and physical activity can be used for positive social change to help build more inclusive, healthier, happier and safer communities.

Which bids the question; are you implementing best practice with inclusive recreation?

Sporting organisations and sports clubs should continually seek to identify barriers that may preclude people from participating in their sport.  More inclusive practices in sports can assist with growing the participant base and in improving community physical, social, mental and spiritual health and well-being.

RecreationSA and Inclusive Sport SA have created a series of resources to help you consider the inclusivity of your facility.
