Gambling

Northern Territory

Community sports clubs are forever undertaking fundraising activities, continually seeking new and preferably easy ways to raise funds. Few club realise that many fundraising activities, such as raffles or even footy tipping, may require permits, follow specific procedures and even undertake reporting specific to a given fundraising activity.

In the Northern Territory, fundraising activities are governed by the Gaming Control Act and the Community Gaming Regulations, and administered by Licensing NT which is part of the NT government. The NT government has a fantastic website with a lot of information specifically for sports clubs.
