Please be aware that NSW Health - Tobacco Compliance Officers will now be issuing fines to people found smoking at sporting events.
Smoking has been banned at sport venues in spectator areas since 7 January 2013 under the Smoke-free Environment Act 2000.
Club members and spectators are still saying that they are not aware of the new regulation.
Unfortunately this excuse will not prevent the individual from receiving a fine.

The fine for smoking at a sporting event is $550 to the individual smoker.

Referee Abuse is NOT ON

Referees train like players, they have a huge responsibility like players, they are coached and analysed like players, they are passionate like players and they fight for honour and positions like players. Yet despite all of this, in any sport, we never hesitate to abuse referees and it seems that `sport rage' is becoming common terminology for our behaviour. In saying this it is a timely reminder for us all to think about our behaviour so that we all can enjoy our sport. Click on more for the full story -->
