WA Parkour Webinar: Design, Management and Activation

8 February 2022
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Delivery Method
Wayne Stuart

Aimed at: Parks and environment managers & supervisors, recreation and youth officers, landscape architects, leisure planners, urban designers, local government technical officers and placemakers.

Parkour is the most googled searched 'unstructured' sport in the world and second in Australia only to Rock Climbing.

Parkour is a universally popular sport with a dedicated and growing community. Relatively un-catered for in our youth spaces, the adoption of an Australian standard for Parkour and its growing demand provides an opportunity for local governments to consider the installation of suitable infrastructure to support the sport.

In this 60 minute online session we will

  • hear from Parkour about the sport and their experiences and requirements
  • learn about the newly adopted standards and how this can make installing a parkour space a practical and viable option.
  • receive the findings of a commissioned white paper on the statistics, attitudes and facts about Parkour as a sport.
  • learn about parkour equipment that has been designed to the new standard and how this can be used to design a parkour facility.
  • find out about maintenance and costs

To Join us you will need to register and we will email the Zoom link to you.

- Andrew Reedy | Play Check

- Mitchell Robinson | Perth Parkour Inc.
