Our Sporting Clubs


8 Ball

The 8-Ball (Pool) Sub Section compete in the Eastern District Pool League (EDPL).  The winter competition is the main competition from March to October, however we occasionally enter a summer competition team which is played from October to March.

The 8-Ball Section typically has 2 or 3 teams in the winter competition.  Team numbers and playing formats vary according to division.  Games are played at home & away venues on Tuesday night at 7pm and practice is in on Monday night from 6.30pm.

Membership fees for the 8-Ball Section are currently $40 registration with the EDPL at the start of each season and $10 per week playing fee.  These fees cover the game, supper on competition nights, shirt, annual presentation function and end of year (winter competition) function.

All members of the 8-Ball Section must be financial members of the Sub Branch (Service, Affiliate or Social).

New members are welcome. Further information can be obtained by contacting Reception on 9870 6604.


The Angling section was formed in the late 1950’s and has always been one of the most popular sporting sections within the R&SL.

The section predominately caters for the salt water angler; however there is an annual freshwater trip to the Snowy Mountains.

Salt Water Programme:

We usually have approximately 13 trips per season, fishing in both Port Philip and Western Port Bays. Charter boats are booked pre season. The boats usually hold between 10 and 16 anglers. A trophy is awarded each trip to the winner of that particular trip competition, there also Perpetual Trophies awarded to the following:

  • First Snapper of the season
  • Heaviest Snapper of the season
  • Most whiting of the season
  • Heaviest Edible of the season
  • Heaviest Flathead of the season
  • Clubman of the year
  • Club Champion

Fresh Water Programme:

An annual trip to the Snowies or an alternative location, accommodation is arranged and groups of members travel together for this event. The competition lasts for a week and a trophy is awarded for the largest fish caught over this period.
