GOT AN EVENT, IDEA, OR CAUSE? LET'S TEAM UP!
why choose us?
We pride ourselves on our grassroots community events, you can see where your support goes, you can see the positive benefits of MATESHIP in your community
Making change before things go pear shaped just makes sense to us (if we wait too long with men its going to be too late)
We believe there's too much talk about the problems. We're here to act on solutions
MEN ARE DIFFERENT
We get blokes and we're great at relating to them to help them make positive change
MEN NEED HELP, TOO
Men's health, male suicide and men's mental health are all at un-Australian levels

part of the solution- not enough focus on solutions- awareness, reducing stigma we need more than that to save lives and get more blokes living a healthier and happier life
solutions not male specific so poorly accepted by men
small quick adaptive
From little things
From there burger nights happened once a month, the odd fire and bbq night took at a mate's place and few local talks.
Things started to gradually build from there.
Our first media appearance was with local radio personality, Sam Coward (and now on our board).
Followed closely by a local Win News segment.
the word spread
As word spread, blokes from across Australia were reaching out to run their own events.
With the help of Sam's good mate, Tim Robson they put together the Grab Life By The Balls board.
First appyling for Not-for-profit status and then Charity status with the ACNC.
Just as things were taking off... the shit hit the fan for the whole world.
With everyone facing their own stress and issues over the last couple of years Grab Life By The Balls faced an up hill battle to stay connected.
2022 & beyond
Our mission hasn't changed and we're still here!
Our goal is to grow to 100+ locations across Australia (and, at some point, the world).
More Mateship. More Locations.
Making positive and proactive change to men's health and well-being
