Who We Are

Clubs exist to support and enhance different elements of the Canberra community.

From small ethnic clubs to medium sized bowling clubs to the large club groups which provide the backbone of much of the sport and recreational pursuits of our citizens – Canberra clubs play a vital role in our community’s economy and social fabric.

Clubs have helped to build Canberra into the liveable city it has become over the last 90 years. More than 200,000 Canberrans are members of at least one club. There are more than half a million memberships circulating in the ACT. Clubs employ 2,300 people across the Territory.

Clubs are for everyone – men, women, old, young, public servant, private sector – all are welcome.

Wander through any Canberra club and you will see in its members a more representative cross section of the broader community than almost anywhere else in Canberra. Some have been members of their clubs for their entire adult life. Many feel an affinity for their club that goes well beyond simply thinking their club is a good place to be.
