RUTHERGLEN IS A GOOD SPORT

We have achieved Level 3 Good Sports accreditation. The program is run by VicHealth in conjunction with the Australian Drug Foundation. This is the highest level possible without doing away with our bar. 

It shows that our club is doing everything possible to responsibly manage alcohol consumption. It means our percentage of alcohol revenue compared to other revenue streams has been reduced significantly. 

This has helped to improve the image of the club within the community and decrease the risk of liability. It also shows that the Cattery is a very family orientated club.
