The Sports and Physical Recreation Clubs industry has performed modestly over the past five years due to the continuing popularity of Australian sport. Steady growth in spectator sport participation has driven attendances at major sporting events and club membership levels. Rising sport participation has also benefited operators of amateur sports clubs at local and regional levels. In addition, greater discretionary income over this period has provided consumers with more money to spend watching and participating in organised sport. As a result, revenue is estimated to grow at a compound annual 3.0% over the five years through 2014-15.
Companies in the industry primarily operate individual sports clubs or physical recreation clubs that provide sporting or physical recreation opportunities to participants, or entertainment for spectators. The industry also includes sports professionals.
