Our aim is to promote and foster Polish culture, language, habits and traditions in Australia as well as support and provide sporting and social activities.
We support activities of Polish organisations and community groups. We are the central hub for the biggest Polish Soccer Club in Melbourne “Western Eagles”, Billiard Club, Bridge Club, Zumba Fitness and Polish Senior Citizens Club.
The Polish Club in Albion is open to everyone. This is a great place, where in the friendly Polish atmosphere members take care of family, friends and business associates.
Other ethnic groups like Eritreans and Pakistanis are organising on our Club’s facilities their annual festivals attended by many thousands of participants.
You are invited to come and join us or to enjoy our favourite Polish meals in our restaurant at very reasonable rates. A range of Polish and Australian beers and other spirits are available at the bar. Club rooms are available for hire for family functions, community events or business purposes.
