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
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.
