Sports and Recreation Commission

Welcome to the Sports and Recreation Commission website. The SRC was created by an Act of Parliament Chapter 25:15 of 1991 and this was after the report on the Commission of inquiry into the organization of Sport in Zimbabwe which was set up by His Excellency the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe Robert Gabriel Mugabe and chaired by Tommy Ganda Sithole. As result of the findings of the Commission of Inquiry the then Sports Council was dissolved to pave way for the Sports and Recreation Commission. The Sports and Recreation Commission derives its mandate from the Sports and Recreation Commission Act and reports to the Government through the Ministry of Education, Sports, Arts and Culture. Part of the mandate of the Sports and Recreation Commission is to facilitate for the accessibility of sport and recreation programmes to the people of Zimbabwe and to oversee the general running of sport and recreation programmes by the National Sports Associations.
