INTRODUCTION

While the lives of Australia's women and girls are varied and ever-changing, their lifelong participation in sport and active recreation is important to leading a healthy life due to the myriad of physical, psychological and social benefits an active lifestyle provides. 

Historically sporting facilities have been designed primarily to meet the needs of male participants. Today, community sport and recreation facilities are becoming outdated and, in a vast range of venues, do not provide the range of amenities that attract and sustain females throughout their life.

 

To encourage more females to become active and involved in sport and active recreation, user-friendly facilities are required. 

Over the last decade in particular, strategies have been developed in Australia to redress the situation of barriers to female participation in sport, recreation and physical activity and advance opportunities for women and girls. These strategies have resulted in more females being involved in sport, recreation and physical activity and more competitive opportunities for them, both in Australia and internationally. 

The role women play in the development of sport in Australia as participants, athletes and sports leaders as coaches and administrators is vital.  We have this website to help you improve the way your council / sports club can develop female friendly facilities.

On this website you will find relevant information for designing female friendly facilities - including state guidelines, sporting codes / guidelines, reference websites and preferred supplier providing a female friendly change room design.
