There are more than 900 licensed community sport, social, cultural and recreation clubs across Western Australia that share more than 320,000 members. The nature of the club industry is unique in that registered clubs are community-owned and all profits (if any) made are distributed back into the community through infrastructure and support of local programs and groups.
Clubs WA is the industry body for licensed clubs and works with the Government, private sector and public to strengthen the role of clubs amongst local communities and to ensure they remain viable.
Clubs WA is part of a national body, ClubsAustralia, and is the largest membership-based not-for-profit organisation in Western Australia. With an active involvement in almost every town, the club industry spreads to a quarter of the population of Western Australia.
Clubs WA Members

Clubs WA provides each of its member clubs with tailored advice and guides on how to work with relevant regulatory bodies to develop and strengthen their club. Clubs WA also offers hospitality training courses through its national training portal, Hospitality Alliance Training (HAT). These courses include Responsible Service of Alcohol, Approved Manager (MLP1) Training and Food Safety courses. In October 2014 Clubs WA launched two new training workshops, Good Governance and Workplace Relations. HAT is one of the largest providers of RSA training in Australia and has trained more than 55,000 individuals across all hospitality industries.
