The RUC in Canberra – “Open and Livable”

by admin

Bowls ACT’s President, Bev Dowrick and EO, Kate Lyttle joined with bowlers and other sports men and women at the launch of the refurbished RUC in Canberra on Wednesday.  Chief Minister Andrew Barr was the special guest – speaking passionately about the importance of keeping pace with other local developments, and then entertaining the crowd with his bowling prowess!    
The RUC President, David Polglase noted that the ACT RUC has worked very well across the last four years, and the refresh unveiled today will provide a welcoming venue for members and their guests to socialise, enjoy sporting and hospitality services, and provides great support and contribution to the local community.
The RUC Secretary Manager, Jeremy Wilcox, describing the club as ‘open and liveable’, says the club now has new, more relevant spaces, including a large outdoor deck, raised lounge area and double-sided fireplace, a new entry and reception area, a café, configurable function spaces and renovated bathrooms including a new powder room for the ladies.
“We have this great location here in Turner, but we had ageing infrastructure, so we wanted to update and remain relevant to the local community of Canberra’s inner north,” Jeremy said.
“And the changes have not only been physical ones, the RUC also has new weekly events on offer, a new Head Chef with over 15 years’ experience in Canberra’s top restaurants, hotels and clubs, a new menu and a more relaxed approach to our staff’s dress code,” Jeremy continues.
No arguments here – the place looks and feels fantastic!
