SMOKING - SPORTING EVENTS

Key messages

Smoking is banned within 10 metres of any outdoor sports venue during an under-age sporting event.

The ban complements and provides legislative support to existing smoke-free policies at sports venues.

By law, smoking is banned within 10 metres (about two car lengths) of any public outdoor sporting venue during an organised under-18s event.

The ban includes training or practice sessions to prepare for an organised under-age sporting event, and breaks or intervals during the course of the event, training or practice session.

The ban also applies to outdoor dining and drinking areas located within 10 metres of an outdoor sporting venue during an organised under-age sporting event or training session.
