Sporties celebrates the anniversary of innovation

Roundbox Media 2 mins read

September 2022 marked the Australia first implementation of OK2PLAY? technology in any Australian pub or club. Moorebank Sporties became the first venue to introduce the innovative digital platform as a way of protecting their members and guests, and twelve months on, the venue has asked 11, 976 members if they are OK2PLAY?

Designed to ensure players are in the right state of mind to utilise gaming facilities, and to connect those who may not be with appropriate support services, OK2PLAY? has enabled Sporties to actively assist members where needed.

CEO Jeff Gibbs, explained, “Here at Sporties, our intention is to provide an entertaining and social experience, but we realise for a small number of our members, there can be issues arising both directly in terms of gaming, and wider life issues. We wanted to be proactive in this area, identifying members who require additional support as early as possible, therefore we implemented the OK2PLAY? platform. We have found the technology to be simple for both staff and patrons, and non-
disruptive to the member experience.”

Ahead of the curve in the industry, Mr Gibbs continued, “We are proud to say we were the first club in Australia to use the technology. When we were approached we quickly saw the benefits of OK2PLAY? We know our members appreciate the innovative approach we have taken to ensuring their welfare as the flagship venue for the platform. To know we have a system in place to provide every member or guest an opportunity to reach out to us is a reassurance to both our club and our members.”

To date, the OK2PLAY? technology has confirmed the majority of almost 12,000 members and guests of Sporties have felt comfortable during their venue experience and connected any of the 185 patrons who responded they were not with support services where necessary. Moorebank Sporties have once again proven to be an industry risk taker and early adapter, recognising the benefits of the simple but invaluable technology, and embracing the positives for their club and the wider community.
