History of the Exies

The Griffith Exies Club was founded in 1938 – by a driving group of forward thinking RSL Members forming a committee, and with 76 foundation members resulted in the Returned Soldiers and Sailors Club being formed, which was situated in Banna Avenue and then later to the RSL Hall. 

The club gradually outgrew its premises and in 1947 The Mirrool House was purchased - the site where the club proudly stands today. It had now become a club that catered to all areas of the community, not confined to on-site facilities but with the foresight of the dedicated group, established a bowls clubhouse and sports club.

This expanding era was brought to an abrupt halt - a fire in the premises on July 24, 1982. 

Two years later on July 14, 1984, the new club was officially opened to the public.
