Looking Back: Gambling’s Not Our Game TV and Radio clip


Rewind: In 2014 Gambler's Help West Vic teamed up with Central Highlands Primary Care Partnerships, Sports Central and the City of Ballarat to create a clip for TV and radio to raise awareness about the risks of gambling and sport, as well as the Gambling's Not a Game Sporting Clubs Program. The clip, presented by Kristy Rinaldi from Ballarat Rush and Bryce Curnow from North Ballarat Roosters can be viewed by clicking on the image or the link below:

Representatives from local golf, football, netball, basketball, soccer, lawn bowls and ultimate frisbee teams all participated and helped to make it a success. The clip was made possible by the fantastic volunteers and collaborators. Over 60 people attended the launch, which resulted in TV coverage, including 4 interviews, radio coverage and interviews with guest speakers, as well as local newspaper coverage.  As a result of the clip many local clubs join the Gambling's Not a Game Sporting Clubs Program and have taken part in education sessions highlighting the risks of gambling and sport.

There's still more to be done. We invite clubs to join the Gambling's Not a Game Sporting Clubs Program. Participating clubs sign the Responsible Gambling Charter, designate a charter champion and participate in an education session. Clubs also receive a certificate of participation, signage to display in club rooms and use of the program logo for promotional purposes e.g. club newsletters. For more info please go to Sporting Clubs Program or call Gambler's Help West Vic Community Educator, Tony Goodfellow, on 5337 3333.
