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;

    •    1 x bowling greens,
   •    4 x en-tout-cas tennis courts and
   •    4 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.

Black Rock Sports Club follows the relevant Victorian State and Federal Guidelines to do with COVID-19 and follow a COVID safe plan. As such, our customers, patrons, and visitors aged 18 and over must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a medical exemption as a condition of entry to our bar area.

 "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!”
