Revesby Workers Club has been around since 1962, when it only had 250 members in the books. 40,000 members now can call themselves members of the R.W.C. , which is a true testament to just how much this Workers club provides to the local community. In 2008 Workers donated over $629,700 to local schools, community, councils, sporting groups and charities, which proves that the Club is all about giving back to its community. With family entertainment, sporting broadcasts and TAB outlets, dining and the latest gambling facilities, just to name a few of the attractions on offer, it is no surprise that R.W.C. have dedicated a large sum of money to developing a new 900 space car park, and signing an agreement to set aside 4600sqm of land to build a new Coles outlet and 26 lane AMF Bowling entertainment area.
The bistro is perfect for the family meal and is both cheap and filling, with an ever growing menu to match its quality. So if you are looking for a good feed without burning a hole in your pocket, look no further than your local club. For those with the craving for the finest Italian food in Revesby, you can also look no further then the newest addition to R.W.C., Bel Cibo (which is Italian for 'Beautiful Food'). If you feed yourself a little too much over the weekend (and with the quality of the food on offer, who could blame you), Revesby Workers has a state of the art fitness centre for all your workout needs. The Health Mates Fitness Centre provides you with the highest quality service, being the winner of the 2010 Australian Fitness Business of the Year award only highlights this fact, and allows you to shed those kilos while having the knowledge that the money you invest in membership is being invested back into your local club, a win-win.
Jessica Mauboy and Stan Walker, Justice Crew and Adam and Selina: Masters of Illusion are just some of the box office events coming to Revesby in the next couple of months that prove to inspire, astound and entertain you. The Club also has events planned for the upcoming Melbourne Cup and even New Years Eve, with golden oldie cover artists Abbalanche providing the audience with a festivity of nostalgic, hip shaking anthems which will have whole generations (Baby Boomers, I am looking at you) flocking to dance the night away. All of these acts, which even the most well known venues in Sydney would be trying to get, just proves the point that Revesby Workers Club is an ever improving local club leaving all others gasping for air.
All your sport needs are met in the Sports Bar, with televised sport on from open to close(check listing on website), along with TAB facilities, Snooker tables, Dart Boards and an area to just sit back and talk with the locals and share your war stories, and believe me it is always an entertaining night in the Sports bar. R.W.C. also run the local bowling club if you are interested in the ankle twisting sport of champions. The Club also runs many different competitions, raffles and promotions for all of their members, and when membership deals start from $5, why would you wait and risk missing out on hundreds of dollars worth of rewards just for being one?
The vast array of gambling facilities allow for a fun filled night for the adults and if you are game enough to use the roulette or blackjack machines you may even find yourself having a lovely conversation with a local about his fortunes or misfortunes of the night, or maybe even receive a lucky tip. Revesby Workers Club is open 7 days a week, 9am till 6.00am, but make sure you check the times on the website to avoid confusion with certain facilities and locations within the club being closed. Remember that your local community is benefiting with every dollar spent, so you have an excuse ready for the wife or girlfriend to why you should stay a little longer. Always gamble responsibly and use the breathalyser before you leave, there is plenty of information around the club for you if you need the help, and just great service in general for any of your needs.
So why not step down to your local club, have a beer and have an experience only the traditional local club can offer. With all money going into improving the club and the local community what have you got to lose?
Your review made me very nostalgic. I grew up only a few streets away from Revesby Workers Club, and witnessed much of its expansion and growth. It was a great place to see bands, and while I never got in to the whole pokie thing, I have very find memories of it. Great to hear it's still going strong and putting back in to the local community.
