BRSC is now open in a limited capacity for sports and recreation


With the current restrictions and the advice of Tennis and Bowls Victoria, we are now able to use the external facilities at the club. To anyone who plans on visiting the Black Rock sports club that social distancing of 1.5 meters must be practised at all times. We have also opened the club and bar for limited numbers and bookings are essential for meal sittings - please visit the social & events page for more details.


Bowls members looking to use the facilities should get in touch with Ray Rutherford or anyone from the bowls committee, the Vic Bowls website has the most up to date information and can be accessed here


Gary our head tennis coach will resume limited coaching from this Wednesday, please contact him through the tennis page on this website for more details.

Tennis members will be able to use courts for singles during the day up until around 4 pm and then again after coaching finishes. Coaching will be on courts 1 and 4 between 4 - 7 pm so best to keep these times free of tennis playing members. Paid-up members will receive a link for the tennis bookings system, all players must use the court booking system by accessing the link. You must make a booking to play tennis, only players booked into courts will be allowed to play so we can monitor the number of people at the club. Please see the booking page for more details.


One of Bayside’s hidden gems, the Black Rock Sports Club is located on Fern Street behind Tricks Reserve (on Bluff Rd) and borders the 15th tee of the Royal Melbourne Golf Club’s West Course.

Previously known until 2017 as the Black Rock Bowling & Tennis Club, the Black Rock Sports Club is home to sporting facilities which includes;

    •    2 x bowling greens,
    •    4 x en-tou-cas tennis courts and
    •    2 x lawn tennis courts


The lawn courts make Black Rock Sports Club one of only a handful of clubs in Melbourne to have grass courts that are open to all members and for public hire.

The main clubhouse (featuring a fully stocked bar) is routinely hired out for private functions, comfortably seating up to 200 people. The club and bar are open to members and the public at all times.


 "To provide facilities for lawn bowling, tennis and social interaction to adult and junior members of the local community through coaching, recreation and competitive play in a social atmosphere of friendship, encouragement and respect.”

The Club will do this by:

  • Aspiring to excellence in all that it does;

  • Working in consultation with its members and the community in order to maintain the highest standards of performance in an equal opportunities environment;

  • Following a policy of prudent financial management in order to develop the Club for the benefit of members and the Community over the medium to long term;

  • Being actively involved with the community to ensure that the Club’s resources are used for our members and the local community;

  • Continuing to recognise the Club’s commitment to be an important part of the Community by continuing to be involved in programs which support our local schools and those who are disadvantaged in our local area.

“Such a welcoming environment, I started

by filling in for the social comp on Tuesdays

and now I'm playing three times a week!”
