Past Players Overview


The club aims to maintain contact with interested past players through this website and through a bimonthly e-newsletter.  If you or someone you know would like to be included in the regular mail-outs please contact the club at or at PO Box 741 Elsternwick 3185 so that your contact details can be added to the mailing list.


Past players are encouraged to contribute to the strength of the Club by attending functions and joining the Club’s coterie group, “The Wickas”.  The Wickas is a group of supporters of the Club, made up of past and present players and some of their friends.  The highlight for the Wickas each season is the Wickas’ Dinner.  The dinner is usually held in September or October of each year at a local Melbourne establishment, where Wickas members eat, drink and reminisce about old times.  Wickas’ Dinners have been held annually since 1996 at venues such as: -

Wickas are recognised by the Club as Social Members and as such are entitled to vote at general meetings and hold office.  As well as encouraging a supporter base for the club and providing an opportunity for fellowship within the group, one of the aims of the Wickas is to support the club financially.  Each year the Wickas provide between $1,500 and $2,500 towards the Club's finances.  A number of members who are unable to attend the dinner generously donate their membership fees to the club.
