Join our dedicated volunteering family
What do our volunteers do?
Tuncurry-Forster Jockey Club relies heavily on our team of dedicated volunteers who work in various capacities to keep the club running throughout the year. Our large family of volunteers enjoy the camaraderie and social side that has been created through working at the club, and we are always delighted to welcome new members to the team.
This essential service is looked after by a group of retired folk whose sole purpose is to keep the track in top condition after track work. The Jockey Club is always looking for extra help with this very important activity. The pot holers work on Tuesday and Friday morning mornings from 8.30 am to 9.30 am.
