I was invited to cover the new MCC Kew Sports Club Inaugural Ball Saturday night on the 19th and I can confidently say it was a GREAT night had by all.
I’ve been to a few sports and bowling clubs around the traps but this one is in a league of its own. Very reminiscent of the grandeur associated with “country clubs”.
MCC Kew boasts ultra modern facilities with all 21st century technology in place … just to make life more comfortable.
For 6 months Angus MacIsaac, Club Chairman. had been orchestrating renovations and final touches ensuring the night went as smooth as their new greens (two being a punch carpet and the third a tiff dwarf) and I have the pictures to prove just that.
The 150 members and guests started rolling in on cue, giving me the opportunity to immortalise each couple on their maiden walk across the “green carpet”.
Welcomed by the chairman they preceded past the Trinity Grammar String Quartet, who added a fine touch to this salubrious room and then onto the outdoor promenade for drinks overlooking an amazing view.
After the salutary speeches and the unveiling of the cormmerative plaque by MCC president Paul Sheahan and Federal MP Josh Frydenberg, the impeccable staff served a delicious two course dinner to a serenade by The Valaries who featured as the nights entertainment. After dinner the girls turned up the tempo compelling the vibrant crowd to hit the dance floor and that is where they stayed until stumps.
The new MCC Kew Sports Club definitely adds value to our fair city and is a welcoming ‘go to’ destination for any occasion.
With a motto “There is always something to do at MCC Kew” this outstanding club is awash with sporting activities and social services. Including Bowls, Tennis, Bridge, Cycling and Group Fitness that includes Yoga!
If you are not a member I highly recommend you join and be part of this year’s summer program which include the “Barefoot Bowls Xmas Events” Melbourne’s Finest Barefoot Bowls Experience. For more details about what’s available go to www.mcckew.com.au
