Golf NSW, Sport4All to Enhance Golf Inclusivity

POSTED ON June 22, 2024 @ 11:38 am

Golf NSW is delighted to announce a new partnership with Sport4All to make golf more accessible and inclusive for people with disability across New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.

This collaboration underscores a mutual commitment to promoting inclusivity and community engagement within the golf community.

Sport4All is dedicated to promoting inclusion and creating opportunities for people with disability in all aspects of sport. The national award-winning program aims to drive positive change in grassroots sport, ensuring everyone can enjoy the benefits of sport when, where, and how they choose.

The committed Sport4All team, which includes people with disability and lived experience with strong community ties, uses their personal experiences to help build genuinely inclusive sporting communities.

Sport4All connects clubs, schools, and communities to build inclusive sporting environments, address common inclusion challenges, and increase the participation of people with disabilities in sports with choice and control.

Mark Ingrey, Senior Regional Manager – NSW for Golf NSW and JNJG, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership.

“Our organisations are thrilled to partner with Sport4All, combining our shared commitment to inclusivity and community engagement.

“Together, we are driving forward the mission to make golf accessible and enjoyable for everyone while fostering a more inclusive sporting environment across New South Wales and ACT.”

Jenny Crandell, Sport4All Acting State Manager NSW and ACT, added, “Our collaboration with Golf NSW is a significant step towards creating more inclusive sports communities.

“By working together, we can break down barriers and provide greater opportunities for the 1.35 million people with disability in NSW to participate in golf, promoting physical activity, and social inclusion.”

“This partnership represents a significant advancement in our efforts to make golf inclusive for all.

“Sport4All and Golf NSW are united in their commitment to creating a sporting environment that welcomes and supports everyone, regardless of physical ability or cultural identity.

Golf NSW has been involved in the NSW School Sport Unit Multi-Sport Days since 2021, offering 82 programs that introduced 10,971 students with various disabilities to the pastime.

Also, since 2021, Golf NSW has held the NSW Inclusive Championship, which has gained prominence as a premier platform for golfers with impairments to compete at the highest level.

In 2024, Golf NSW has committed to participating in 34 Multi-Sport Days across the state, furthering its mission of inclusivity.

The organization is dedicated to ensuring that golf is a game for everyone.
