Chairman’s Report

CHAIRMAN'S REPORT JOHN MURRAY, CHAIRMAN

“I am pleased to report that our ANZAC Day Mixed Bowls Legacy Fundraiser was again a success this year. Your Directors and I were very humbled by the support from all those who attended, as we were able to raise close to $3,500 for Bankstown Legacy, which helps to support our war widows."

We have some very exciting things happening at Bankstown Sports Club during the winter months with a major redevelopment of our Sports Bar and the creation of the new Brewhouse officially underway, as well as new menus at Greenfield Station Bistro and Platform 1. Our newest restaurant Lucky Chengs has been a big hit with our members in its first few months since opening, and I would encourage all of you to come and taste the unique Asian street cuisine for yourselves. I am pleased to report that our ANZAC Day Mixed Bowls Legacy Fundraiser was again a success this year. Your Directors and I were very humbled by the support from all those who attended, as we were able to raise close to $3,500 for Bankstown Legacy, which helps to support our war widows. We also had a member of the Bankstown Sports men’s bowls club raise a bit of extra money for the cause. Stuart De Pede agreed to shave his head on the day and collected $350 in donations. Well done Stuart! Bankstown Sports Club also hosted the Zonta Sydney West Year 10 Citizenship Awards dinner in May where director Alex Fulcher and I presented special awards to students from 11 schools, recognising their achievements in the community. The Zonta International group works to advance the status of women around the world through various initiatives aimed at eradicating domestic violence, raising awareness of the needs of refugee women and empowering young girls to pursue their dreams. Here in the Sydney West region, we provide help and support for women’s refuges, as well as special services to hospitals and schools. Celebrations for International Nurses & Midwives Day were held at Bankstown Hospital on May 12, where the Board and I were pleased to donate additional funding for scholarship programs, which will further the education studies of up to 15 nurses. This is the 10th year that we have supported the nurses with a $40,000 donation to fund special programs to improve their skills. 2016 is a very exciting year in the sporting calendar with the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio. Australia will again be sending a very strong team, with athletes

entered in almost every sport. We will be keeping a close eye on a few very special competitors who hail from the local Bankstown area. Chloe Esposito and her brother Max are competing in the modern pentathlon. Chloe was a member of the Bankstown Sports Athletics Club until the London Olympics, when she decided to relocate overseas. Jacob Hansford grew up training with the Bankstown Sports Swimming Club and will be competing in the men’s 4x200m relay team at this year’s games. The directors and I would also like to offer our congratulations to the Club and La Piazza for several recent awards. Bankstown Sports won the Health & Wellbeing category at this year’s Clubs & Community Awards in May for our on-going financial support of the Little Wings Charity. The organisation is a not-for-profit children’s charity that provides free ongoing flight and ground transport to families in need from country NSW, who live and work in remote areas with little or no access to specialised medical services. Little Wings has been a part of the ClubGRANTS program and receives regular financial assistance from Bankstown Sports. The club has also hosted major fundraisers and functions for the group, provides ongoing accommodation and ground transport for families who use the Little Wings service, offers marketing and promotional assistance for the Little Wings brand, and staff run their own events to raise money for the cause. Congratulations to La Piazza as well which was named Favourite Restaurant in the CanterburyBankstown area in the 2016 Go West Campaign. The owners and staff work tirelessly to create a true authentic Italian atmosphere for our members and their guests, and the accolade is well deserved. And finally, the directors and I would like to offer our condolences to the family of Jack Bedford OAM, Former President of the Bankstown RSL Club Limited and current President of the Bankstown RSL Sub Branch. Jack passed away on May 1. He was a well-liked and highly-respected member of the local community and will be missed.

WELFARE REPORT

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the relatives and friends of members who have recently passed away: Aloysius Koh, Gino Pantaleone, Kevin Figg, Victor Rootsey, Denise Yewsall, John Leroy, Raymond Leonard, Norma Wright, Vincent McCann, Frank Djurdjev, Jo-anne Sankey, Walter Niess, Noel Williams, Anthony Tesoriero, Alfa O’Sullivan, Kathleen Caldwell, Norman Robinson and Annette Bradley.

Helmut’s Hint

Tapas, like these lamb ribs, makes it easy to talk and share.

Take your tastebuds

TO HEAVEN! InTouch caught up with Executive Chef, Helmut Gundendorfer, who gave us a sneak peek at some of the taste sensations he and his team have created for Platform One this winter. Relish our creative new takes on classic dishes, hearty mains and special treats! PLUS – if you have never tried tapas before, now is the perfect time to treat your taste buds. “Tapas are just the right size to let you have more than one entrée and sample many flavours,” says Helmut. "It's the perfect way to share a meal and many families like the idea of putting many dishes on the table and being able to mix and match. "It's the way modern dining is going as it's so tasty and convenient." 4

Helmut’s Hint Use the same amount of onions to beef for a great gulyas.

DELECTABLE LAMB RIBS Our tender, succulent, mouth watering ribs are triple basted in a pomegranate jus, served in perfect tapas portions. The multi layers of glistening glaze are infused with the bright red colour of pomegranate seeds which pop with sweet and sour notes, to compliment the rich, juicy flavours.

IS GULYAS, IS GOOD Also known as “goulash”, this classic soup is a rarity these days. The slow-cooked braised beef and rich round silverside shank are perfectly complemented by a fusion of carrots, potatoes, onion, garlic and celery, delicately seasoned with bay leaf, caraway, lemon zest and sweet Hungarian paprika. Served with sour cream and chives, this light but deeply warming dish is a perfect start to your meal as you escape the wintry weather.

BEEF WELLINGTON TAKES CENTRE STAGE

Helmut’s Hint

This classic is inspired by the Gordon Ramsay version I saw at his ‘Paris Hotel’ in Las Vegas.

The highlight of our winter menu is the classic Beef Wellington – served on a traditional English plate under a stunning silver cloche. This retro signature dish features a generous eye fillet enveloped in delicate puff pastry and a thin layer of prosciutto, surrounded by shaped vegetables, pan-fried mushrooms, parsley and onions. This much-loved winter warmer is sure to satisfy!

KEFALOGRAVIERA – SAY ‘CHEESE’ Originating in Macedonia and developed in the 1960s, this tantalising cheese dish uses a combination of sheep and goat’s milk to produce a taste similar to haloumi. It is pan-fried, then served with halved heirloom tomatoes, lemon juice and a generous drizzle of balsamic vinegar to offset its naturally salty taste. Garnished with fresh oregano, Kefalograviera is reminiscent of the white washed walls and blue roofs of the Mediterranean.

GIANT MOOLOOLABA PRAWNS Our Mooloolaba prawns have been carefully butterflied and flash-seared in a combination of olive and vegetable oil, ensuring they are cooked to perfection! Splashed with a garlic, paprika and chilli mix, this wonderfully light, natural and flavoursome dish will not disappoint!

Helmut’s Hint

These prawns are ‘Under 8s’ which means 8 to the pound (or 450g) – so they’re huge. Bankstown Sports InTouch

Helmut’s Hint

We’ve lightened up an old favourite so that you can enjoy the true flavours of winter.

YOU’LL LIKE LOUKOUMADES

SWEET THINGS (ARE MADE OF THIS) If you’re fond of fondue, this sticky-date pudding served in bite-sized chunks, dipped in a warm butterscotch and chocolate sauce is the ideal desert for you! The cubes of sticky-date pudding have hints of ginger and cinnamon, the squares of strawberry and vanilla marshmallow are flamed and dripping, the fresh strawberries are halved and delicious, and the vanilla-infused ice cream is the cool addition that balances it all off.

Loukoumades (pronounced ‘Loo-koomar-dees’) are a real treat if you like profiteroles or donuts – except these traditional Greek deserts feature a syrupy surprise made of cinnamon, honey, clove, sugar and water. The dough is shaped by hand before being double spooned and carefully flicked into oil held at 185º and deep-fried for 4 to 5 minutes – enough to create delicious dollops with crispy outsides and a gooey, chewy finish. They are served with honey, cinnamon ice cream and pistachio halva.

Helmut’s Hint

I owe the inspiration for this dish to my Greek Mother-in-Law.

LAMB SHOULDER AT ITS BEST Two hours marinating, then six hours slow roasting, this southern Gippsland lamb is a no-fuss, natural dish featuring traditional tastes and combined with some exciting new flavours! Served with Freekah Risotta, an ancient grain from Syria which is rich in protein and has a unique smokey flavour, the dish is finished off with mint, Jamon salad, chopped roasted pistachios, almonds and walnuts and a parmesan butter.

Helmut’s Hint

The secret to the risotto is the fresh chicken stock we make here at the club. 6

BUSINESS Travelodge Bankstown is getting down to business with the unveiling of 54 new executive-style rooms designed to accommodate the corporate market and growth in the local area.

These classy executivestyle rooms feature a stylish dark ash colour scheme with an earthy appeal. 8

Bankstown Sports InTouch

Corporate travellers choose Travelodge Bankstown for a number of reasons. It’s located in the hub of Bankstown’s bustling CBD, with bus and train transport and shopping all within walking distance. It is also uniquely part of Bankstown Sports Club with its multitude of restaurants, bars, entertainment activities and parking – all in one convenient place. Travelodge guests automatically receive temporary Club membership too, entitling them to member discounts and extra value when they stay. Together, the Club and Travelodge provide everything a visitor could want – and have a reputation for being the best place to stay.

THE BEST JUST GOT BETTER Of course, being popular means increased demand. Continual growth within the hotel industry has pushed expectations even higher for venues to re-invent themselves and keep up with market trends. Travelodge Bankstown has risen to the occasion with the recent construction of four new floors, two of which have been devoted to brand new rooms that were unveiled in March and are now “open for Business”.

EXECUTIVE CLASS In this first, much-anticipated release, there are 54 smart, contemporary corporate

rooms available. These classy executivestyle rooms feature a stylish dark ash colour scheme with an earthy appeal. Sleek designs are a highlight of the beautifully finished interiors. Wall-mounted TV screens are standard – as is the unlimited Internet that’s perfect for business. Plus – you have your choice of Queen or King-sized beds. The existing rooms have been refreshed, boosting the total number of available rooms to 162. There are also another two floors of the hotel which have the potential to be converted into additional executive suites.

WHO STAYS? The Travelodge management team know their target audience and have responded accordingly. Business leaders are constantly telling us that understanding our demographic is a proven principle of success, and 'knowing your customer' is our marketing mantra. Management at Travelodge Bankstown have identified three distinct segments likely to be fueling occupancy rates.

n

First is the corporate individual who comes to the area during the week to conduct business (Bankstown is a hub for commerce in the west). Then, there are the workers associated with the ongoing construction in the local and surrounding areas. This group tends to be subcontractors and specialist suppliers.

ut ck o Che or 33 f e g a ge p elod v a r T nt our inme a t r e ! Ent ages Pack

And the third group is specifically related to businesses associated with Bankstown Airport, such as cargo, buses and the like.

LOCAL IS EVERYTHING Bankstown's predicted population growth is upwards of 10.7% over the next 15 years*. And business-wise, the facts show a clear trend to a robust local economy in the future. National Institute of Economic and Industry Research shows that in 2013/14, Bankstown contributed 2.2% of New South Wales’ employment and 1.8% of its value add. With Travelodge’s refurbishment complete for now, the Club and the Hotel are positioned to offer the epitome of service excellence for our members and patrons. *Source: http://forecast.id.com.au/bankstown Bankstown Sports InTouch

Your club remembers :

TRACK RECORDS "…November 1999, the Dunc Gray Velodrome set its own records, ready in good time for training and the events themselves.

Local history is a wonderful thing. In this issue of InTouch we look back on the year 2000 when the Olympics were on our doorstep. Your Club was host to numerous overseas guests, and the futuristic Dunc Gray Velodrome wowed the international cycling community. With the Rio 2016 Olympics starting 5 August, it’s worth remembering our very own involvement with the Sydney 2000 Olympics – and how it affected the local area. In truth, the ‘Olympic Year’ was going to change the municipality forever. Construction of stadiums and infrastructure was in full swing. Olympic teams and coaches came out to train and stayed right through to the Closing Ceremony and beyond. Then, as that magic moment in September 2000 approached, tourists started flooding in and the whole area really began to buzz. It felt like Australia was on show and that the whole world had come to be a part of it. As a result, your Club became a glamourous hub and temporary home to many visitors.

12

Bankstown Sports InTouch

According to the Club’s history book In The Name Of Sports, most of the American team stayed at the Athlete’s Village at Homebush. But some high profile athletes opted for accomodation away from the main site, choosing instead to stay at Travelodge Bankstown. By all accounts, they were heady times. History records that the Club responded with an array of initiatives, including lavish shows, tribute bands, generous promotions and cash giveaways, as well as opening The Calypso Coffee Lounge (now known as the intouch café) – the first to serve patrons 24-hours a day. When Olympic weightlifter Suzanne Leathers married her coach Don McCauley at the Club – the day before the Olympics Opening Ceremony – 70 wedding guests descended,

followed by US television crews and reporters from 12 countries. If you’d walked into Bankstown Sports 16 years ago, you’d have seen flags of the world and Olympic bunting decorating the walls. In fact, such was the variety of nationalities of people visiting the Club, some waggish members likened it to the League of Nations. Not surprisingly, the massive overseas influx was good for business and Bankstown Sports announced a record trading profit for the year ended 30 June 2000.

WORLD CLASS VENUE One of the biggest changes to the local area was the construction of the Dunc Gray Velodrome at the Crest in Bass Hill, named after Kiama boy, Edgar ’Dunc’ Gray, Australia’s first cycling Olympic gold medallist.

DUNC GRAY VELODROME

Commenced in May 1998 and opened in November 1999, this new indoor cycling track set its own records, ready in good time for training and the events themselves. The venue’s splendid architecture brought international attention to the local area – and design kudos too. The futuristic roof emulating the look of a modern helmet received numerous plaudits, as did the 60 kilometres of imported Baltic pine that contributed to its extremely fast surface. Sean Eadie, Bankstown cyclist and world sprint champion, experienced many memorable moments there, including winning bronze in 2000 as part of the men’s pursuit team. We can all be proud of the Club’s past association with the Olympics, and in particular the Dunc Gray Velodrome. We are also pleased that Bankstown Sports Cycling Club is fortunate to have continued access to Australia’s greatest velodrome. Bankstown Sports InTouch

Chloe and Max

ROAD TO RIO! The Esposito family is one of a kind. Father Daniel competed in the Modern Pentathlon at the 1984 Olympics. Daughter Chloe followed in his footsteps in the 2012 London Olympics. Now, brother, Max, joins her in the hunt for medals in Rio – coached by their Dad.

Chloe Esposito has come a long way since the days when, as a young girl, she would compete for numerous Bankstown Sports sporting clubs.

Is there sibling rivalry? Not according to Chloe, in an interview she did with The Sydney Morning Herald.

In August, she will be representing Australia at the 2016 Rio Olympics, competing in the sport that runs in the Esposito family: the Modern Pentathlon.

“Max and I talked about it. We wanted to go to Rio together,” she said. “I am so proud of Max.”

It’s her second Olympics, and she’s hopeful of bringing home medals, after finishing an impressive seventh in London in 2012. But these Olympics are different. It’s four years later, and, after younger brother Max shocked former champions with a gold in the Asia/Oceania qualifiers last June, he’ll be going too.

And what’s it like having your Dad pushing you through a brutal eight-hour-a-day regime, you might wonder? “It’s good because he knows us so well,” says Max, “he understands a lot about the sport. “We have a couple of arguments… but he can tell whether we’re bludging or slacking off.” The brother-sister duo was thrilled to be chosen to represent Australia on the biggest stage at the biggest sporting event in the world. “It feels amazing,” says Chloe, a member of the Club for five years, “I’m so happy … I’m really proud to represent my country.” How the Pentathlon evolved? Penta means five in Greek, and athlon means competition. In Ancient Greece, the Pentathlon lived up to its name with five events held over one day – discus, javelin, long jump, wrestling, and a short foot race called a stadion. Today’s version, known as Modern Pentathlon, was introduced in 1912 by the father of the Modern Olympics, Pierre de Coubertin, and still retains the five-event structure. Coubertin modelled the event on a 19th Century soldier stuck behind enemy lines, hence the five sports of today: fencing,

Competitors accrue points for their performance in each discipline and the winner is the one with the highest tally at the end of the fifth event.

FOLLOW CHLOE AND MAX Following this dynamic duo is easier and more interesting if you know a little more about what’s involved in their chase for Olympic gold. Some facts you may not know about the Modern Pentathlon include: • Fencing is the only event where competitors face off against each other, it runs for 1 minute, and the winner is the first to land a hit. • Riding involves show jumping over 12–15 obstacles, over a 350m–450m course. • The swimming component is 4 x 50m laps of the pool. • Running and shooting are now combined into four 800m running loops with a 10m pistol component at the start of each one – competitors have to hit the target five times before running the next loop. • Laser shooting was introduced in 2011 to replace traditional pellets. Remember, your Club will be carrying all the action from the Olympics broadcasts and you can come on in and watch in comfort. The Rio 2016 Opening Ceremony is on 5 August and the Closing Ceremony is on 21 August.

TH E B A S E M E N T

IS BREWING! Boutique beers, gourmet burgers, wine and cheese and our very own microbrewery – the new Basement Brewhouse at Bankstown Sports will have it all.

We wanted a venue that was new and completely unique to the Bankstown area. Something that had never been done before. A destination bar that would have something for everyone. The Basement Brewhouse will be exactly that. Construction is underway with the current Total Sports Bar being completely redeveloped to make way for a new multi-faceted layout, featuring our very own microbrewery, where we will be producing our own beer. We will be focusing on quality, flavour and technique, rather than the actual volume of alcohol we produce, and our special four-vat system will allow us to create four different flavours and styles of beer as often as we like. Our in-house beers will be accompanied by wide range of other independent boutique and craft beers on tap, catering for all tastes. We will also have cocktail and wine lists available with a selection of boutique brands. The Basement Brewhouse won’t just be all about beer though. One of the main highlights of the venue will be our new Burger Bar which will be open ‘til late, with a range of gourmet food offerings. Among the menu items to tempt your tastebuds will be a Signature Reuben Burger and a delicious Pork Belly Burger. For something a little lighter, an in-house Gourmet Delicatessen will serve a range of cured meats and cheese. The design concept for the new outlet is also something that’s completely different to any other bar or event space in the area.

We’ve gone for a very modern industrial feel, with exposed gold and copper piping, which complement large cement pillars with timber and metallic features. As far as layout goes, we decided to move away from the old open-plan design to focus more on smaller gatherings, and provide our members and guests with a more intimate atmosphere for their events. The room has been divided up into multiple sections which can be roped off for functions, but can also be left open for larger events. This may all feel very un-sports-bar-like, but rest assured, we will still be screening all major games and sporting events, with the option of big screen TV’s in the common areas or smaller flat-screens in your own private booth. And for all members who love that Grand Final, big-game atmosphere, from 2017 we will screen large sporting events, including State of Origin games, in The Theatre. One of the goals we wanted to achieve with the new Basement Brewhouse was to appeal to a broader audience and not just sports fans. We want the venue to be somewhere you can meet your mates and watch a game and enjoy a meal with friends, with enough entertainment to keep non-sports fans happy too! Bankstown Sports Club is always working on ways to create better experiences for our members and guests. We feel the new Basement Brewhouse is a concept that can be enjoyed by all who visit, and we can’t wait to see what you think! Bankstown Sports InTouch

SATURDAY 2 JULY $30 MEMBERS $35 NON-MEMBERS THE THEATRE DOORS OPEN 7.15PM SHOWTIME 8.00PM RESERVED SEATING One of the best Tenor voices, not only in Australia, but the world! Experience the magnificence and beauty of Mark’s truly spectacular voice. The Impossible Dream, Somewhere, With a Song in my Heart, The Prayer and more. Performance will include support act Clarissa Sparta.

MARK VINCENT

Songs that serenade

At the age of just 22, Mark Vincent has the world at his feet – and a spectacular concert set to serenade the night away. Here’s a guy who has emerged as one of Australia’s most remarkable young voices. At 15, he won Australia’s Got Talent, then signed with Sony Music and became the only classical artist in the country to have released six albums by the time he was 20. And, with sales from those albums reaching close to one million, it’s little wonder that the entire world has stood up and taken notice of this rapidly rising star. You, of course, can have Mark Vincent in your world when he brings his amazing tenor voice to Bankstown Sports in his show, Love Will Lead The Way. It’s a show full of old school classics laced with the Mark Vincent slant, including Granada, The Impossible Dream, Somewhere, Maria (from West Side Story), With a Song in My Heart, Ave Maria, The Prayer, Time to Say Goodbye, and many more. Purchase tickets at BankstownSports.com or at main reception.

Alan Jones, of 2GB Radio said “From the moment I first met this young man it was clear he had a unique gift. It’s been a privilege to see the journey so far.” Mark grew up listening to beautiful arias and the great songs of the last 60 years, and it was his grandfather who first recognised the magnificent dulcet tones we know and love today – also mentoring Mark along the way. Mark is supported by the Best Female Vocalist of the Year, Ms Monique Montez, and backed by the illustrious Serenade Orchestra. In all, it’s a beautiful sound and a beautiful night – and not one to be missed if you love a little serenading. Tickets $30 Members, $35 Non-members. Booths $140 Members, $160 Non-members. The Theatre, Saturday 2 July. Doors open 7:15pm, showtime 8pm. Purchase tickets at BankstownSports.com or at main reception.

TODD McKENNEY Wh at a life!

One of Australia’s leading Reality TV judges is not just a lovable rogue, he’s also a consummate performer, back with his brand new show! If you have ever wanted to see a song and dance man showcase his skills, then the brilliant new show Todd McKenney Live is definitely the event to go to.

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, The Boy From Oz and West Side Story.

It’s a one-man show about one man’s life of theatre and performance and will take you on a musical journey that celebrates 30 amazing years in show business.

You’ll be invited into this amazingly talented performer’s world as he traces his glittering life through song and dance – peppered with hilarious stories and cheeky anecdotes, plus dollops of fun gossip that will have you rocking in your seat.

Todd will perform with his band – ably supported by his fabulous backing singers – the songs that have shaped his life and inspired his career.

As Alan Jones of 2GB said, “In his own show, Todd McKenney shines more brightly than the sequins on his shirt. This is one of Australia’s great and enduring talents. Enjoy him.”

He'll feature some of the crazy songs he first danced to at his mother’s dance school, right through to the Peter Allen classics that have influenced his life.

Todd McKenney Live, celebrating 30 years in showbiz, is at The Theatre on Friday 22 July, at 8pm (doors open at 7:15pm).

Todd will celebrate artists who helped make him who he is today, including Bette Midler, Barry Manilow, Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli. Plus he will draw from the many musicals that he has appeared in, including Grease and

S IT M R E H 'S N A M HER

HIT TOWN!

The best music of the ‘60s is coming direct from the UK! Who can forget songs like Mrs Brown, you’ve got a lovely daughter? Or those rollicking lyrics … I’m Hen-er-y the 8th, I am, I am? If you can hear them in your head then you probably lived through the ‘60s and, who knows, maybe you’re one of the original flower children! Either way, you’ll know exactly how much fun there’ll be when the original Herman’s Hermits hit our shores for their Australian tour from July through to September. Be sure to “save the date” for Saturday 13 August – and book your tickets for the Herman’s Hermits Sensational Sixties Experience and a huge night of nostalgia.

Another mum said her 13 year-old-son discovered he loved Herman’s Hermits while listening to her old albums. Drummer Barry Whitwam is the only original member of the 1960s band that produced over 20 Top 10 hits in their heyday. According to him, the show is all about nostalgia, good song writing, and songs that sound good on the radio. “We’re going to take you back to the most exciting musical decade ever,” the veteran performer said.

Tickets are only $35 each, or $160 for a booth of four people, and with so many young people enjoying the music of the ‘60s, why not bring them too and make it a family night out?

“I’m an old timer. After 38 years of touring and playing with Herman’s Hermits I’m deaf as a post – but I can lip read,” he joked, in his self-deprecating style.

As a 50-something mother said at a recent concert, “The nostalgia thing is in now, and my daughter wants to know what I listened to.”

Don’t miss out. Book now for Herman’s Hermits Sensational Sixties Experience at BankstownSports.com or at main reception.

SATURDAY

13 AUGUST Direct from the UK, the original 1960s hit-makers, Herman’s Hermits are here. With over 20 ‘Top 10 Hits’ you don’t want to miss out on a fantastic performance which includes classics A Must to Avoid, No Milk Today and Mrs Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter.

The timeless experience of going

TO THE MOVIES! The smell of the fresh popcorn and big plush seats – there’s something about going to the movies in an actual cinema that you just can’t recreate. Whether it’s an action-packed drama or a light-hearted romantic comedy – it’s always better on the big screen! Earlier this year Bankstown Sports converted The Theatre into a cinema, screening newly released movies for the enjoyment of members and guests. Now The Theatre and the ‘Movies’ operate hand in hand, entertaining all with the perfect combination of live shows and theatrical releases.

THE CHANGING MOVIE EXPERIENCE Going to the movies has changed a lot in recent times. With the ability to purchase tickets online straight from your mobile or desktop, it’s only gotten simpler to treat yourself or your family to the delights of a true cinematic experience. Going to the movies at Bankstown Sports is just as simple, with the ability to select your desired film session with the click of a button and purchase tickets

online. Alternatively visit our friendly staff at front reception to purchase tickets in person. For the more indulgent, another recent addition to the movie experience is the ‘gold class offering’. At Bankstown Sports, even the more indulgent amongst us will feel right at home – with more leg room than a standard cinema and an in-room bar complete with popcorn, San Churro chocolates, ice cream and a range of beverages; all able to be accessed without missing a second of the film. Not to mention the 8 bars and 10 unique dining options also available under the one roof at Bankstown Sports.

MOVIES ARE CHILD’S PLAY

always be something screening at Bankstown Sports that the kids and the kids-at-heart are eager to see. Why not consider the movies at Bankstown Sports to celebrate your child’s next birthday? Book a few seats, or even a few rows and host your very own birthday party. With popcorn and soft-drinks aplenty, no party guest will leave dissatisfied.

TAPAS TEMPTERS! All the colours, tastes, variety and value of tapas come to Birrong Sports with Tapas Night every Wednesday during winter. Tapas is an amazing invention and it’s no wonder the style is enjoying renewed popularity. The healthy Mediterranean flavours and smaller portion sizes mean you are guaranteed a wide variety of tastes to tempt your taste buds!

MUSCLE IN ON MUSSELS

The Tapas Night menu at The Italian Bistro at Birrong Sports includes 15 traditional Italian tapas plates, from which you choose eight, a choice of garlic or bruschetta pizza, plus coffee and tea.

SPICE UP YOUR SQUID

At just $35 per person*, it’s a superb night of fun and value. Tapas Night, every Wednesday night, June 1 to August 31, from 5:30pm in The Italian Bistro.

SIZZLING SICILIANS Nothing beats garlic prawns to ward off the winter blues! Get to the heart of it with this traditional tapas sizzling with garlic, chilli and tomato in a rich Napoletana sauce.

MEAT IN ROUNDS Meatballs are the quintessential Italian dish and Polpette al sugo is no exception. Enjoy a glass of red while you savour juicy, authentic meatballs in a rich, heart-warming Napoletana sauce.

Cozze Marina doesn’t disappoint if you like your seafood! Try these local black mussels seeped in piping hot tomato, garlic and chilli – accompanied by crisp pizza bread. Simply yum.

Love a delicately seasoned coating of lip-smacking salt with a pinch of pepper? Then order the Salt and Pepper Calamari – it’s lightly fried and highly recommended.

ANTIPASTO MISTO Mix it up with friends with our mixed antipasto board. Choose from a delectable range of cured Italian meats, olives, peperonata, provolone cheese and parmigiana.

HELLO HALOUMI Say hello to one of the finest cheese taste sensations ever: high-quality Haloumi cheese grilled on both sides and served in the traditional style with a drizzle of olive oil and lemon.

NIBBLE, TALK, SHARE Spiedini di pollo are ideal for a meal with friends. Yummy skewers of marinated chicken,

char-grilled and sizzling, are easy to handle, easy to share – and melt in your mouth.

INVOLTINI SICILIANI No one nails an eggplant like the Italians, and this Sicilian-style wrap is a brilliant combination of rolled grilled eggplant and prawns – guaranteed to take your taste buds away from the everyday.

OCTOPUS ON THE GRILL Italian tapas would not be complete without one of the delights of the ocean. Here, in Polpi alla Griglia, you get marinated baby octopus char-grilled to mouth-watering perfection. *Minimum of four people, cold drinks not included.

OR PUT ANOTHER WAY…

And who doesn’t like to be rewarded for their loyalty?

Thai Beef Salad is a mere $6.50.

Bankstown Sports Bowls is big on bowls, bar and bistro, but also offers the intimacy that only a smaller venue can bring.

Chicken Parmigiana is only $8.50.

No wonder this classic club is popular – and not just among the regulars who compete in the men's and women’s bowling competitions.

This is superb winter value and, as you can see, the savings really add up.

Better still, there’s now another reason to get down there, with a half price Meal Deal operating throughout June, July and August.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Every time you purchase a meal from Bankstown Sports Bowls Bistro, Tuesday through to Sunday, you’ll be rewarded with a ‘half price’ Meal Deal coupon. Your coupon is then redeemable by you on Thursday nights from 5.30pm onwards, for main meals.

Crumbed Lamb Cutlets you’ll only pay $9. Grilled Barramundi Fillet just $8. WOW!

Plus, because you get one ‘Half Price Meal Deal’ coupon for every meal you have in the Bistro during the week, you can keep coming back for more every Thursday between 1 June and 31 August.

WITH THE BAT It has been 16 years since Bankstown Women’s Cricket Club member Sue Fairhurst walked out at her second Olympic Games to represent Australia at the 2000 Sydney Olympics for softball. Sue won a Bronze medal at the 2000 Games, equalling her Bronze achievement in the 1996 Games. An elite level batter, Sue now replicates her batting standards on the cricket pitch, which has taken her club to numerous successes of late. The club last year won an astonishing

four premierships, a first in 44 years. Sue has been the club’s highest scorer, biggest hitter and a key to their success for the past two seasons. For example, Sue scored an astonishing 174 runs including 23 fours and three sixes in one game. With Sue’s expertise and knowledge on the pitch, Bankstown Sports

Women’s Cricket Club will be looking forward to another triumphant summer of cricket. The Women’s Cricket Club plays at the Memorial Oval and training starts in late October. To find out more contact, Justin Newman on bankstownwomenscricket@gmail.com or phone 0409 151 573.


Sports Report

Bankstown Sports Cy cling Soumia Karare at Dunc Club junior member Gray Velodrome

TWO WHEELS TO SUCCESS Bankstown Sports Cycling Club junior member Soumia Karare found her love for the sport by watching the riders she idolised from past Olympic Games when many Australian representatives earned a slew of medals. The 10-year-old hopes to do the same one day. The young talent is a breakaway from the pack in her exceptional performances at the recent track series at the Dunc Gray Velodrome. Club Secretary Peter Buckingham says Soumia is a talent ready to jump away from the bunch of girls she rides against. In her short time she has developed the skills to be a targeted force within races and continues to excel in her transition through the age groups. The Bankstown Sports Cycling Club has had a large influx of junior riders over the past 12 months with the addition of 14 new riders for 2016. With a facility such as the Dunc Gray Velodrome, it’s not surprising that elite level athletes are starting to emerge.

WOMEN IN SPORT – DID YOU KNOW? Recent research from the Australian Bureau of Statistics indicates teenage girls in Australia face an increased risk of chronic disease unless they become more active. According to the research, nearly 60% of girls aged 15-17 report doing little to no exercise. The Australian Government has launched a campaign called Girls Make Your Move which encourages girls to be more active.

Feel you have the speed? Come and try out your skills at the Velodrome.
