About
The Ravensthorpe Tigers compete in the Ravensthorpe & Districts Football Association.

The Ravensthorpe and West River-based Tigers won their 19th senior grade Ravensthorpe and Districts Football Association premiership in 2016 thanks to a resounding 20.16 (136) to 3.5 (23) grand final defeat of Southerners. They again reached the grand final in 2016 but went down to Southerners by 5 straight kicks.

Their 20th flag arrived in 2017 although it was something of a hollow victory as the league was contested by just two clubs, Tigers and Southerners. After a five round home and away series the two sides played off in a grand final for which they had automatically qualified and which the Tigers won by 36 points, 12.14 (86) to 8.2 (50).
