Club News


St Mary’s netballers kicked off fundraising for the inaugural Netball Cultural Trip 2015 with 20 volunteers supporting the BUPA Around The Bay cycle event on Sunday 19 October run by Bicycle Network.

This major event attracts over 12,000 riders annually riding 50km, 100km, 135km, 210km or 250km courses and raised over $900,000 for The Smith Family foundation so not only did our volunteers raise funds for next year’s trip, they also played a significant part in the success of this great event.

Our volunteer roles included route signage setup/removal, SAG wagon (picking up riders) and corner marshalling around the Queenscliff – Ocean Grove route sections and doing a fantastic job encouraging and assisting over 6,000 riders safely around the course as they headed to or from the Queenscliff ferry to complete the 210km or 250km course on a typical Victorian spring day.

Bicycle Network are extremely impressed by the quality and nature of the people who have volunteered on only 2 occasion from St Mary’s Sporting Club to which there is possibility of even greater involvement by the club with next year’s event. Great work and excellent results by all concerned with everyone having fun on the day!!

I just wanted to let you know my family and I were visitors to your club last Saturday 16th August.  We want to say thanks for a great day.  We are supporters of the South African team and we stayed back for the presentations etc post match.
I have not been down to any footy club for some time and we thought the people we met from St Mary's in the clubrooms and around the ground were extremely friendly and welcoming.
I know the South African team appreciates the relationship your club has with them too.
Top day - Thanks St Mary's.

CLUB SONG: (sung to the tune of It's A Grand Old Flag)

It's a grand old flag, it's a high flying flag,
It's the emblem for me and for you
It's the emblem of, the team we love,
The team of the green and the blue.
Every heart beats true, for the green and blue
As we sing this song to you, (what do we sing)
Should auld acquaintances be forgot
Keep your eye on the green and blue
