A non-proprietary club is an association where any income, profits and assets are used only to promote the objective of the club, and are not distributed to its members. Examples of a non-proprietary club include a sporting club, RSL club or ethnic club.
A licence issued to a sporting club may also include additional premises (on application) for occasional use, providing the club owns or legally occupies the additional premises. The sale of liquor on the other premises may occur only for events where the sport or game of the club is being played.
