                     (a)  by refusing or failing to accept the person's application for membership; or

                     (b)  in the terms or conditions on which the club or association is prepared to admit the person to membership.

             (2)  It is unlawful for a club or incorporated association, the committee of management of a club or a member of the committee of management of a club or incorporated association to discriminate against a person who is a member of the club or association on the ground of the member's disability:

                     (a)  in the terms or conditions of membership that are afforded to the member; or

                     (b)  by refusing or failing to accept the member's application for a particular class or type of membership; or

             (4)  Neither subsection (1) nor (2) renders it unlawful to discriminate against a person on the ground of the person's disability if membership (however described) of the club or incorporated association is restricted only to persons who have a particular disability and the first-mentioned person does not have that disability.
