The Palaszczuk Government has unveiled its 10-year sport and recreation strategy.

Minister for Sport Mick de Brenni said the Activate! Queensland 2019-2029 strategy sets the scene for success from grassroots activity right through to elite level, and beyond.

“Activate! Queensland is a whole of government approach that will see $506.4 million invested over the next three years to get all Queenslanders more physically active, more often.”

Activate! Queensland 2019–2029 is the Queensland Government’s 10-year strategy, outlining the new collaborative direction for physical activity and movement in Queensland.

The Active8! 2019–2022 outlines a practical, whole-of-government action plan for the next three years to deliver on the 2029 vision — to enrich the Queensland way of life through physical activity and provide more opportunities for Queenslanders, of all ages and all abilities, to be physically active. Activate! Queensland focuses on four priority areas:

  • Activate Queenslanders
  • Activate Environments
  • Activate Success
  • Activate Collaboration

The Department of Housing and Public Works lead the collaboration across all levels of government, industry and key stakeholders. As one of the major sporting stakeholders, Tennis has worked with the Department on how this new stagey can positively affect Tennis Queensland, our workforce, clubs, coaches, players, high performance pathways and participation programs, in addition to how we can demonstrate the impact of tennis on communities based on need, data and research.

Tennis Queensland is part of a new partnership approach that the Department has undertaken with six State Sporting Organisations that will enhance the delivery of sport and active recreation services, and meaningful participation opportunities for more Queenslanders.
