Minister

Hon. Leon Bignell MP
Minister for Recreation and Sport

Minister Bignell and the South Australian Government are committed to progressing the Seven Strategic Priorities to ensure South Australia continues to be one of the most liveable places in the world. The sport and active recreation industry is recognised as a key contributor to three of the Governments Seven Strategic Priorities:

  • creating a vibrant city
  • safe communities
  • healthy neighbourhoods.

Whilst many people get involved in sport or recreation for the pure enjoyment of the activity, research has shown that regular participation has benefits for individuals, their communities and the state in terms of social, health and economic outcomes.
