Summary This report analyses Australian hospitalisations data for 2012–13 to provide an insight into the impact of sports injury on 1 part of the Australian health system, and to improve understanding of the types of sport-related injury conditions for which people are admitted to Australian hospitals. In particular, the report focuses on the acute care services provided by hospitals for sports injuries. Cases of sports injury are examined in terms of the body region injured and the type of injury sustained. Information is presented on the main sporting activities associated with the injuries, the care provided in hospital, the number of days that patients spent in hospital for the acute care for each injury type, and estimated costs of the hospital care. Ten types of injury are described in some detail. These injuries were selected because they were comparatively frequent and/or were prominent in the sport-related injury literature. Together, the selected injury types account for more than two-thirds of all cases of identifiable hospitalised sport-related injury.
