On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management, Staff we wish to thank all Members who have visited the Club since we reopened on Monday, the 1st June 2020. It goes without saying that the last 2 months have been the longest time that the Club has been closed since the Club opened.

The vast majority of all guests have understood and have respected the changes to the Club that have allowed us to welcome you back, but below are reminders of these regulations that we all need to keep abiding by, to ensure that we continue to enjoy the facilities of our Club.

ACCESS TO CLUB

Access to the Commercial Club is via our Elizabeth Street Entrance and Bottle Shop doors. Members will be required to enter and exit separately, we ask that when entering the Club, you keep to the left and when leaving the Club, again please keep to your left. We have this clearly marked for you so please observe the signs and ensure you keep 1.5m distance at all times.
