A brief history of WPBC


In 1945 West Pymble grew with a lot of returned servicemen and women. A school and Community Hall were built in 1951 and the Community Hall was used as an indoor bowling club. West Pymble Bowling & Sports Club was established in 1960 as a neighbourhood bowling club and the indoor bowling continued until 1968.

In 1962, construction began on a green and the Clubhouse and the first green was opened in 1964 and the second green was opened in 1965. In 1965, the men played their first Pennants season in Grades 5 and 7.

Extensions and changes were fairly continuous with internal ones in 1968, 1969 and 1971 and 1978 saw the enclosure of a verandah at the northern end to make the Ladies Room.

The main highlight was the 2007 addition of the western roofed verandah and the installation of full length glass walls and doors along this side to give a view over the greens while sitting inside.

In the mid 2000s, an outside caterer was employed to provide meals every Friday evening and for Club functions. This was an alternative to the monthly dinners prepared by volunteers.

At a Special General Meeting in 2013 the name was changed to West Pymble Bicentennial Club.
