Sports Groups

Angling section

The Angling Section consists of Box Hill RSL members who are keen on fishing and enjoy the company of a diverse group with similar piscatorial interests.  Activities include one day trips, usually on a Sunday, and at least two weekends at convivial fishing locations, such as Barwon Heads or Inverloch.  The Angling Section meets at 8pm in the RSL library on the 4th Wednesday of the month.  Contact can be made with the president Trevor Moody (03) 9877 5786 or secretary/treasurer Gareth Davis (03) 9878 7940.

Snooker

Snooker and Billiards has been part of the fabric of Box Hill RSL since its inception – the popularity of this pastime can be traced back to the World and Australian Champion, Walter Lindrum and Walter’s support of the war effort (WW1) and is the only sport that has historically had mention in the Rules/By-laws of the League.

Box Hill RSL has two full size tables situated in the downstairs area of the Sub-Branch – these tables are available for use by those members who have paid the membership fee of $40. Visitors are welcome to play on the tables as long as they have a financial member accompanying  them.

Competition is played on Monday evening (A grade, with two teams), Tuesday mornings (over 55’s two teams) and B Grade (one team) in the evenings. Wednesday evening has been allocated for a higher grade of snooker which has depended on the quality of players available.

Both tables are available free of charge (no meters, no charge) for all forms of the sport, Snooker, Billiards and Pool. This sporting section is welcoming to all members of the Sub-Branch and if you need assistance in improving your game, there is always someone available to help.
