    Sport, Recreation and
    Physical Activity
    It is well established that regular physical activity improves physical
    and mental health, boosts brain activity and brings communities
    together. Physical activity is defined by the World Health Organization
    as any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscle that requires
    energy expenditure.

    The benefits of physical activity are far-reaching and extend
    beyond health and wellbeing alone. Benefits can include a sense
    of purpose and value, a better quality of life, improved sleep
    and reduced stress, as well as stronger relationships and social
    connectedness. Additionally, promoting active modes of travel
    such as walking and cycling are beneficial for the environment
    and for health. High participation in physical activity from
    childhood creates the foundations for a healthy life.

    People who are physically and socially active contribute to a
    thriving sport and recreation sector. Networks of sport and
    recreation clubs and organisations bring people together and
    are a rich source of social capital for our State.
