No Smoking at Sport Venues
Under the Smoke-free Environment Act 2000, smoking is prohibited in outdoor public areas, including:
- Spectator areas at sports grounds used for organised sporting events
- Within 10 metres of children’s play equipment in outdoor public places;
- Public swimming pools
- Public transport stations, bus stops, ferry wharves and taxi ranks;
- Within 4 metres of an entry to a public building
- Commercial outdoor dining areas
Individuals have an obligation to comply with this requirement at sport venues and be considerate of others. Clubs have a responsibility to provide a smoke-free workplace for workers and volunteers and should ensure that adequate No Smoking signage is in place and that every effort is made to maintain a smoke free environment at sport venues for players, officials, spectators and visitors
