North Sydney Leagues Club, now known simply as Norths, was founded in 1955. Like most of the “Leagues” Clubs established in the 1950’s, norths was the result of its high profile district rugby league team.
The club was originally located in a residential property in Neutral Bay and moved to its current site in Abbott Street, Cammeray in 1964. As norths approaches some 60 years of operation, the club has evolved into a sophisticated and innovative entertainment and recreational centre, servicing Sydney’s Lower North Shore community.
Facilities include two dining areas, function rooms, a 530 seat auditorium, a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness centre, indoor and outdoor lounge areas, a boutique bottle shop with an impressive selection of quality wines, a Platinum TAB, 2 x squash courts, a courtesy bus service and a members rewards program. This is all serviced by a multi-level car park that can accommodate over 320 vehicles.
In 1996 norths amalgamated with the historic North Sydney Bowling Cub which was founded in 1888 and is the second oldest club (by one day!) in Australia.
Norths Bowlo is located in St Leonards Park next to North Sydney Oval, and has breathtaking 180-degree views of Sydney Harbour and the city. Norths also amalgamated with seagulls Club, the former giant of the border clubs at Tweed Heads on the far north coast of New South Wales. Seagulls have been an integral part of the Tweed Community for over 40 years and seagulls has the honour of being the oldest provincial rugby league club in Australia.
In 1998, these three clubs formed the norths Group and members can enjoy reciprocal rights at all clubs.
North Sydney Leagues Club may have changed dramatically over the years but will always pay homage to its rich rugby league heritage as home of the Mighty Bears, one of the codes foundation clubs.
In conjunction with such sporting credentials norths also hosts a variety of intra-club sporting and special interest groups consisting of over 2,500 members.
