Wests Mayfield

The Registered Club now known as Wests Mayfield has had as many names as associations.  The Club was built on land adjacent to Stewarts and Lloyds for employees as part of ‘Project Recreation’ which was launched in 1937 by the company to provide recreational facilities for activities like soccer, league, tennis and bowls.  This was the first complex of its kind by a major Company in Newcastle for the benefit of all its employees.

The Club underwent many transformations adding more sporting facilities like squash courts, as well as a bowling club with dining, function and bar facilities.  The Recreation Club was one of the few clubs to own its own holiday complex, six self-contained holiday units at Manning Point near Taree.

In February 1982 the name of the Club was changed to the Tubemakers Recreation Club Limited because of the change of company name. Under this banner the club again underwent major extensions and renovations.  The clubs restaurant, function room, auditorium and existing lounge areas were refurbished.

In 1989 the club and Tubemakers disassociated by mutual agreement to assist the Club to expand its membership.  The change of name from Tubemakers Recreation Club to Club Phoenix giving the club a new identity, with the phoenix being the clubs logo.

Continued renovations including one of the first synthetic bowling greens in Australia and the building of the multi level car park put the Club into a financial position where amalgamation was required.

In 2001, the Club amalgamated with Western Suburbs (N’cle) Leagues Club and was rebranded Phoenix Sports. Continual improvements since have seen an award winning fitness and aquatics centre, Balance Health Club open in 2005. 

In 2007, the Club name changed from Phoenix Sports to Wests Mayfield to show a solidarity with the Club at New Lambton and a move forward for staff and patrons to the new style of Club seen today. In 2009 The Gateway Inn, a stunning 76 room hotel began trading with outstanding success.

The Club has won awards for entertainment and fitness facilities and in keeping with the sports heritage, is the training venue for the Newcastle Knights and other elite athletes and teams.

Good morning, I would like to thank you and all the wonderful staff for everything you did for me to make the weekend go so smoothly. I was blown away by such courteous staff. We all decided that Wests Mayfield is the happiest place in Newcastle. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone.   Please pass on my thanks to the chef as the food was amazing. Everyone was so happy and full.   I would not hesitate to hold another event at Wests Mayfield. Again thank you so much   Kind Regards Sally Somner
