It was an awesome evening for the Grand Opening Of River Club St Francis, the ground-breaking facility in the area.

After a blustery afternoon’s southwesterly buffeted across the St Francis Bay zone, on cue the wind started to die down for the grand opening of River Club St Francis Bay. This new-look venue – described thus on social media – ‘River Club is your all-in-one destination for recreation, relaxation and adventure’ – has been much anticipated and opened to incredible support from locals and visitors alike.


There are 3 x SKYPADEL World Championship courts as well as the River Club pro shop to cater to all your Padel accessories needs. Here’s everything you need to know about the sport of Padel  – Right Here.


There is an 8 lane, 25 metre waterpolo friendly pool as well, which will undoubtedly be popular amongst the young set and those training for team sports and team events.

Bok Bar

Many of you might already be familiar with the Bok Bar as it hosted a good few evenings during the Rugby World Cup to great support from the community and looks to be one of those popular sports bars that will always have great support. There is a bar, restaurant, convenience store and off sales, so the facility offers everything that we need right now.

The River Club is also perfect striking distance for all the epic surf in our area, being Supers Bruces and Seal Point, as well as quick access to the Golf Courses and a number of other sporting activities on the river, on the nearby trails and more.
