Community Sport

The TAB has been supporting the Sport and Recreation industry in WA for many years.

Most recently through the Community TAB brand, the TAB has been supporting the Integrated Football Program. The Integrated Football Program provides the opportunity for intellectually disabled men and women to play in football teams at mainstream amateur football clubs. The program also allows players to strive for an elite level of football by selecting a State Team to compete against other States in an Integrated carnival each year. Community TAB has proudly supported the State Team and individual teams in WA.

Community TAB has also supported the WAFL recently by sponsoring the WAFL Halftime Show which communicates community stories to the sporting industry and WAFL viewers.

Every year the TAB invests a portion of sports wagering turnover back into community sports through the Sports Wagering Account with the Department of Sport and Recreation.

Over the past 10 years the TAB has provided more than $30million to the Department of Sport and Recreation to invest in community based programs across WA. The funding has supported everything from the Australian Commonwealth Games Teams Appeal through to local government sports development officers.
