OUR CLUB

ABOUT US

Merewether on the Green is undoubtedly Newcastle most friendly club. We have been a part of the Merewether community for over 60 years and are privileged to service our local residents. Merewether on the Green is not just a venue for playing bowls, rather a social hub where all members of the community can gather for any style of social event.

Merewether on the Green has two renovated outdoor BBQ areas that can be used for ANY kind of celebration or get-together; a new swing-set for the kids to play and enjoy; a spacious function room overlooking the greens holding up to 100 guests; “Patray’s” family friendly restaurant which has been modified to give a more defined and private restaurant area; and a specific corporate meeting and training room.

Plus if you’re looking for something fun to do, you can enjoy a game of bowls for only $2 per person! Merewether on the Green is the perfect place to come for a casual afternoon drink.

Merewether on the Green offers a range of extra benefits for ALL of their members, social and bowling alike! From discounted drinks to birthday vouchers, restaurant discounts & club points – so what are you waiting for?!

History

Merewether Bowling Club was opened on the 6 February 1956 on the site of the Caldwell St Colliery. It was initially opened with only one green, but in 1960 a second green was established following the closure of the adjacent railway line. In 1967, the Club House was opened, at a cost of $100,000.

Since the Club’s establishment in 1956, numerous developments, changes and advances have been made to ensure the Club is in a financially strong position in todays’ economic climate. As a result of our changing image and the many improvements that have been made to the Club’s premises of late, the  next step in the development process involved rebranding our Club.  Whilst the Club’s name still remains as Merewether Bowling Club Ltd., our new registered trading name is,“Merewether on the Green”. This name aims to be more appealing to “non-bowling” patrons and reflects a broader understanding of what patrons might expect from our club other than just bowling.

Following the Sixty Fifth Annual General Meeting of the Merewether Bowling the election of board members for the 2017/18 year resulted in the following:- President  Ron Fleming;- Secretary Warwick Bourne;- Treasurer Darrell Nicholls;- Committee Members;- John Slevin, John Calder, Warren Ferrier, Walter Stefanszyn, Anthony Hughes (Club Patron) and David Brain (pictured above).

During the Sixty Fifth Annual General Meeting, amendments were made to The Constitution of the Merewether Bowling Club. These amendments and updated Constitution can be found by clicking on the attached link :- Constitution of Merewether Bowling Club 2017
