Thanks for visiting sub clubs 2

Below is a message from the Hoppers Club General Manager, Michael Lewis.

Isn’t it about time you

made our Club Your Club?

The sub-clubs at Hoppers Club cover a vast array of different sports and activities.  Some of our groups are high competition focused clubs like Netball and Swimming, then there are our more social focused clubs like our Social Travel Club and our All Abilities Carpet Bowls Club.

If you are thinking of joining a sub-club then we recommend you visit the sub-club information page on this website for the sub-club you are interested in.  On that page you will find out more about the sub-club, when they meet, what they charge to join and how to get involved.

Every sub-club is different, they all charge different joining fees, they all get together at different times and at different places, they all have different types of participants and most have different goals.

So we highly recommend you look over the different sub-clubs pages here to ensure you find the right one sub-club for what you want to achieve.

If you are looking for some information which isn’t here then please feel free to contact our friendly Hoppers Club Office Staff anytime on (03) 9749 4844.

Micheal Lewis, Hoppers Club General Manager

How to join sub-clubs 2

Below is the most common Q&A’s.  Our sub-club managers are happy to answer your queries directly, if you visit their pages you will find a contact number to phone them on.  You are always welcome to call the Hoppers Club direct on (03) 9749 4844 if you have any further queries.

What is a Sub-Club?

A sub-club is a “club” within a “club”.  So it’s a club of Hoppers Club, and the reason it is called a sub-club, rather than a group, is because it has a formal president, a treasurer, a committee and they hold annual meetings to discuss their budget and projections for the following year.  As a member you will be asked to vote on matters at the annual meeting, and you welcome to apply to join the committee yourself if you want to.

Sub-clubs are really a club themselves, however, they have created an alliance with Hoppers Club, most likely for a “home base” for their club to meet and sometimes play.

To join a sub-club of Hoppers Club, you must first join Hoppers Club, which is an annual charge of $10.

Can anyone join a sub-club?

Yes providing you meet their age requirements, and you are a paid member of the Hoppers Club.  You should enquire directly with the sub-club you wish to join as to what is involved, the cost and what forms you need to fill out.

Do I have to be a member of Hoppers Club to join a sub-club?

Yes you have to be a paid member of the Hoppers Club before you can join a sub-club.

Are there financial benefits to being a member of a sub-club?

Yes, as a member of a sub-club you will be entitled to a 5% discount off your meals at the Hoppers Club bistro & cafe.

Who do I pay if I want to join a sub-club?

You pay the manager of the sub-club directly.

Do I have to book a ticket to go along to a sub-club meet up?

You should check with your sub-club manager as to what is the usual arrangement for sub-club meet ups.

Some of our sub-clubs are more social than competitive.  We class these sub-clubs as “social” so people joining them realise that it is not about competitions for everyone in the club, however, many social sub clubs are also in competitions from time to time.  Our socially focused sub-club managers regularly update their sub-club pages with updates advising of what they have been doing, what they have planned and general information about their sub-club sport/industry.   Simply click on the boxes below if you wish to read more about these sub-clubs…

TIMBOON October 15th 2017

Timboon October 15, 2017 60 Members departed at 8.15 am for Timboon, morning tea in Colac we were treated with cornflake cookies made by Raelene and baby cannoli made by Monica, Carlos wife. They were both delicious if I must say so. We made our way to Berry World where we were given a short talk on the history of the farm. We also meet “Aussie” the resident Cockatoo, he was very welcoming and was going from shoulder to shoulder, like Daryl’s, Maree’s, Bruno’s, Wendy’s and Pam’s just to name a few. We were given a chance to wonder the paddocks and pick and eat any strawberries that we found. Back on the bus to Timboon Railway Shed Distillery for lunch. where we were treated to a very delicious lunch we were given a short talk about the distillery and were given a taste of the Whiskeys. We then made our way to Timboon Cheesery, home of the Schulz Organic Farms where we were given a talk by Ruth and a taste of various items that the cheesery sells. The cheesery sure did a good trade from us folk on the bus, selling out of most things. At 3pm we boarded the bus to start our trip home, stopping at Colac for a quick cuppa and biscuits and a toilet stop as well. We were treated to a special surprise on our way home……a raffle. The winners were Antonia Muscat, Julie Given, Wayne Ralston all getting $75 trip credit each and Keith Cartwright won a hamper from Berry World. A great day was had by all so thanks goes...


GEELONG TRIP – March 18, 2018 35 members boarded for the trip to Geelong on the way it started raining and we were on our way to a market luckily the market was held in a shed it was good. There were a few purchases made. We left the market at 11.15am for the Gateway Hotel for lunch, arriving there at approximately 11.35am. We did have a lovely buffet meal with a variety of things to choose from. We left there at 1.30pm to go to the Wyndham Cache for afternoon tea, on the way we made a surprise stop at the the B24 Liberator Restoration in Werribee, for those of you that don’t know what this is…. It is the only remaining B24 in existence, located on the Princess Highway and Farm Road in Werribee. We were given a tour of the shed, it is run by volunteers and if you are a WW2 plane history buff well this is the place to visit. The restoration is being done by volunteers and donations. The Travel Club made a donation, thank you to those members who also made their own separate donations. Upon arrival at Wyndham Cache we had time to go into the deli to make some purchases. We headed on for our lovely Devonshire tea. The scones were delicious just having come out from the oven. A great day was had by all and a big thank you goes to Lyn for organising the day.

Tasmania November 2 – 7, 2017 Day 1 There was 34 people on board for this trip. Leaving the club at 6.10am. They arrived at the airport and boarded the plane to Launceston. When they got to Launceston Peter from McDermott’s Coaches was there to meet them. After loading the luggage on the bus, they went to the Evandale Gourmet Sauces and Gardens, having a tasting which was delicious. They were also given a talk given about how to make the sauce and jams with purchases being made by some of the group. Next stop was to Woolmer’s Estate which is a World Heritage Listed Convict Site in Longford they also visited the National Rose Garden, the roses weren’t out but the gardens were lovely. They were also given a tour of the homestead taking them into the lady of the house’s bedroom. Apparently, there was an eerie feeling in that room and people couldn’t wait to get out of there. There next stop was to visit the village of Evandale having lunch at the local bakery. After lunch people had spare time to look around the town. The group were then taken to the Launceston Country Club Villas where they stayed for the 5 days whilst in Tasmania. Drinks were enjoyed after a long day and then off to a buffet dinner at the Casino.
