    I have received several letters from two different clubs within the same section of competition that have been unsigned and I would like to know if they are legal or not under Australian Law?

    Just to help you with your answer, one letter is from a Club Board of Management to another Club Board of Management requesting them to follow up a previous incident that involved me.

    The other one is from a Club Board of Management advising me of a decision that they have made.

    Being unsigned, can a club take any action as requested within the letter?

    Hi Amen423,

    Given these are club letters and presumably, club actions, you will need to look at club rules. Not all letters need signatures. In fact, it is not required for letters to have signatures in most cases. If the letter is written on the club's letterhead, and there is a sender name/group, then this is sufficient.
