The History of Sports

Sport is an activity that involves physical exertion, skill and elements of competition. It is also the only recreational activity that is governed by rules and regulations. The National Sport and Active Recreation Policy Framework is a guideline that is accepted by all Australian Governments. Its fundamental principles include fair play and no predetermined result. Even though participants have the opportunity to break the rules to improve their performance, they should never do so in order to gain an unfair advantage over their opponents.
