The Salisbury Sport and Recreation Network welcomes community sport and recreation providers

The Salisbury Sport and Recreation Network was established as part of the City of Salisbury’s Sports Development Framework. The Network enables us to build strategic and sustainable partnerships that support growth and development of local sport in Salisbury providing opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and interests to participate in sport.

This program is unique and innovative to local government and will enhance the City of Salisbury’s investment in community sport.

A key component of the network will be to work collaboratively across both sporting and non-sporting communities to build stronger, healthier and more active communities that work together through sport.
