Movember Sports Club

Community sport with your mates is good for you.

It’s why we launched Movember Sports Club. It's a series of community sports charity events that bring people together through different sporting codes, from golf to rugby. Events run year-round and are focussed on social connections, havin' fun, and doing good for men's health.

The Movember Sports Club motto is simple: With your mates, for your mates. All you need to do is join up.

More about Movember Sports Club

What is Movember Sports Club? How does it work?

Movember Sports Club is a series of community sports events and matches, held around the country throughout the year. Each match promotes mateship and social connection through sport. Participants raise money for Movember which funds groundbreaking men’s health initiatives in mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Who can participate? What sports are covered?

Movember Sports Club welcomes all sports that share our values of connection and mateship through sport. Rugby, golf and cricket are popular, but just about any sport or activity that brings men together and promotes men's health – even gumboot throwing – is eligible.

How do I register my event?

We'd love to hear from you. Get in contact and tell us what you have in mind.

How much money should my event raise?

Any and all funds help Movember fund groundbreaking men’s health projects. Events that raise over $1000 will be featured on and be provided with the official Movember Sports Club logos.

Do events have to run in November?

Movember Sports Club is year-round. As you might imagine, the month formerly known as November is our busiest time of year. However, Movember's life-changing work happens every day of the year.

How do I get involved as a partner or sponsor?

We'd be delighted to hear about partnerships and similar enquiries. Get in contact and tell us what you have in mind.

Where do the funds go?

Glad you asked. The funds you help raise go towards groundbreaking men's health projects. We invest in the critical areas of mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. We encourage you to learn more about our impact.
