House Policy on Children at Canterbury

Restricted Areas include; the Bulldogs Sports Bar, the TAB, the Atrium Bar or the Gaming Floor area.

- Patrons are advised that leaving children unattended in any part of Club premises (or in vehicles) is unacceptable conduct and may result in patrons being asked to leave the Club. Such breaches may also be subject of disciplinary action against the member/patron.
- The accompanying responsible adult is to ensure that their child behaves in an appropriate manner when on Club premises and refrains from behaviour which is likely to cause discomfort or inconvenience to other patrons. Such behaviour includes, but is not limited to, screaming, running around unsupervised between tables, swearing, intimidating, and pushing or fighting with other children.
Unacceptable behaviour of a Minor may result in the Minor and their accompanying Responsible Adult being asked to leave the Club premises.
Responsible Conduct of Gaming
To promote the Responsible Service of Gaming Canterbury League Club has a policy which complies with the various acts of Parliament that apply to the Registered Clubs Industry. This policy will be implemented for the benefit of our members, their guests and the community in general.
Canterbury League Club encourages responsible practices in advertising and promotions to ensure that the Club is not providing inducements to gamble. Signage to promote Responsible Gaming and where to seek help are posted in the gaming area and also throughout the Club. Canterbury League Club will not under any circumstances provide cash on credit cards or the cashing of cheques.
Members and/or visitors to Canterbury League Club have the right to exclude themselves from the Club. In order to provide support and advice, the Club’s Managers are trained to be a confidential point of contact for the club’s patrons, or the families of patrons, who believe they may have a problem with gambling. Canterbury League Club encourages those patrons who self-exclude to keep in contact with the Club so that the club can assist wherever possible.
Providing information and training to Club staff on problem gambling is essential. The concept of patron and employee care can help reduce problem gambling in the Club. Staff are trained to ensure discretion in matters involving problem gamblers.
Canterbury provides a comfortable environment where patrons are able to enjoy their surroundings and use of club facilities without disruption from others that are inappropriately dressed or behave in an unacceptable manner. To ensure patron compliance with these principles, standards have been set for dress and behaviour.
