PROFILE: NBC SPORTS CLUB

Passion for community and diversity
ILIANA STILLITANO
NBC Sports Club has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a modest bowling club.

While the club has since grown in both size and membership, what has remained unchanged over time is its notable commitment to the community it serves.
 
“We have such a melting pot of ethnic communities on our doorstep and what we have done is diversify ourselves over time to be able to offer something for everyone,” said club Vice President Trevor Oldfield.

“It has been a huge challenge to achieve that but to be able to serve the community is something we’re passionate about.
 
“Whether it’s opening our doors to mums with prams who come to enjoy a coffee during the week or families with children through our new Kids Backyard venue, shows for the elderly or supporting local schools or sporting groups – we’re committed to our community and offering them a destination where they can come and be entertained.”
 
And that invitation has been extended to the region’s business community. The club recently hosted Greater Blacktown Business Chamber’s largest Business After 5 event which saw a record 240 local business people connect and network in the club’s auditorium.
 
“The Business After 5 event really showcased the club’s facilities,” Mr Oldfield said. “Our auditorium comfortably seats 160 people or up to 200 people theatre style.
 
All-purpose venue
 
“We have an experienced team that can help local businesses host any work event from a seminar or function and we can cater for team building exercises with our fun barefoot bowls venue.
 
“We have ample parking, sound and audio systems and a range of quality food and drinks packages – and best of all, when a business chooses our club, it’s one local business supporting another local business.”
 
The club’s lounge and gaming areas were recently renovated and already the Kids Backyard – a play area featuring a jumping castle, playground and play equipment in view of an enclosed dining area for mum and dad - has been a hit.
 
And there are more big plans in the works, Mr Oldfield said.
 
“We’re looking at introducing a themed restaurant and revamp our menu so that we can offer an even larger range of cultural foods,” he said.
 
Record attendance
 
Mr Oldfield, who is also president of the Greater Blacktown Business Chamber, described the recent Business After 5 event as “a very exciting night. We had a fifty percent increase on our previous highest Business After 5 attendance, but more importantly than that, it was a night of valuable networking and local businesses connecting with other local businesses. That is what being part of a local Chamber is about.”
 
On the night, Epping MP Damien Tudehope relayed a message from Premier Gladys Berejiklian who said Western Sydney was the nation’s third largest economy and a powerhouse that was growing faster than the rest of Sydney.
 
That growth is a reality not lost on NBC Sports Club, Mr Oldfield said.
 
“It has always been important to us to reinvest in the club and expand our facilities to meet the needs of our own growing community and that also includes the local business community,” he said.
