The 1930-31 season provided the first major successes for the club when Mr.J.Boyd captured the Victorian Champion O Champions title. This win came on the tail of his four club singles titles during the late 20?s and the 30-31 season. He went on to win two more singles titles at the club durig the 30?s, stamping him as the club’s most decorated player of the period. 

Boyd’s win in the Champion Of Champions was followed immediately by a win in the V.B.A. Fours, the itle taken off by C.Allen, D.Mason, A.Lee & W.Veal. In 1936, the club achieved its’ first pennant success when the Division 6 team were able to achieve a sectional title. In addition to this, the Ladies’ Division C team captured a VLBA pennant. This completed a golden period for the club, and its’ first real success among the metropolitan competitions.

On September 20th, 1927, the Fairfield Ladies Bowling Club was formed, largely through the efforts of Mrs. A. Williams. The wives of members had been particularly active in the club for the five previous years, assisting greatly with social events and catering at the club.

This figure was almost six times the original membership ten years earlier when the club formed.

The single-minded Mrs. Williams capitalized on this fact and managed to have the new club formed.

Her fund raising efforts within the local community were tremendous, and within a couple of years she had seen to the building of a ladies clubroom.

Moving

A meeting was held during September 1921, the main focus of which was to disband the Bowling, Croquet & Tennis Club and to re-form as a new club – The Fairfield Bowling Club. This happened as a result of Mr. William Bolger purchasing a lot on Gillies Street, Fairfield for the princely sum of 775 pounds in cash.

This land has remained the site of the Fairfield Bowling Club to this day. During the 20?s, a billiard table (earlier donated by Sir MacPherson Robertson) was one of the main forms of recreation at the club. Such was its’ popularity that a committee had to be formed solely to deal with matters relating to the table. 

By 1923, the club had prospered greatly, and boasted a membership of 118 (with a few waiting for approval).
