You will require this permit if you intend to sell liquor on the premises of an incorporated sporting club that is not fully licensed. This special permit allows for the sale of liquor for a period up to 15 hours per week. It is issued primarily for the social enjoyment of club members.
The hours for the sale of liquor are set six monthly, beginning 1 October and 1 April each year to coincide with the football and cricket seasons. In addition to the 15 permitted trading hours per week, clubs may apply for extra hours for additional functions and significant or extraordinary events by applying for a special permit.
If you are planning to allow patrons to BYO (bring their own) alcohol, please consult your local Council for compliance issues.
