VicHealth – ‘Doing Sport Differently’ – Wangaratta Pickleball Club
Sport North East has partnered with VicHealth and Regional Sport Victoria to showcase the incredible Pickelball program. The Pickleball program is a partnership between Sport North East, VicHealth, Wangaratta Pickleball Club and Rural City of Wangaratta and aims to increase participation in community sport. This was achieved by acknowledging a key barrier to participation and addressing it through implementing a program that caters to all skill levels, age, gender and abilities.
VicHealth is a long-term partner of Sport North East, and this project is a great example of implementing the Doing Sport Differently principle 3 which is ‘Participation should cater to different levels of skill, ability and fitness’.

“We want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome to be active in their community. VicHealth is excited to support Sport North East to provide more diverse and social activities in North East Victoria,” said VicHealth CEO Dr Sandro Demaio.
