From the archives – 89 years ago March 1933, the Club established reciprocity with one of the most iconic clubs in the US – the Los Angeles Athletic Club.

At the time it was written in the Club’s magazine “Club Life is assuming an international aspect, and maybe it will yet build a basis for firmer friendships among peoples of different outlook than all the confusing conferences in Geneva”.

The introduction came from the well-known athlete of the day Snowy Baker. Snowy represented Australasia in swimming, diving and boxing in the 1908 Olympics and was an incredible ambassador for the Club in his adopted home in the USA.

Our relationship remains strong, as do the extraordinary facilities on offer in the Club.
