The Hub Guide

Smiling girl gets ready to play badminton

Today sport and recreation clubs and organisations face increasing financial and regulatory pressure. This pressure, coupled with increased expectations from participants, aging club facilities and declining numbers of volunteers, requires us all to think innovatively about how some sport and recreation is delivered.

This guide has been developed to share learnings from previous hub projects across the country. Many of these projects have been collaborations between organisations and the communities they serve and, in many cases, they have resulted in sustainable, increased participation.
