Sports and fitness venues across Banyule, Darebin and Nillumbik are invited to become ‘Water Friendly.’
The sports and fitness sector is perfectly positioned to support the connection between active living and healthy drink choices for their players, members and spectators.
Many venues already have Water Friendly initiatives and we are building on this momentum with our Water Friendly Sports Challenge. The Challenge provides support and recognition to venues that are promoting water in 2019. Click here to register.
By offering healthy drink choices in places where sport is enjoyed, venues can create an environment that supports the wellbeing of their communities. We know this is what people want, with three in four people wanting access to healthier options in Victorian sporting venues.
There is no ‘one-size fits all’ approach to being Water Friendly. However, there are many useful strategies that can be tailored to the culture and goals of your sports or fitness venue.
