"Legend has it that the Chap in the center, was the wicketkeeper back then, who dropped a sitter in the previous match. His match preparation duty ("FINE"), was to milk a cow before each match to warm his hands up, as penance for his past blunder"

CLUB HISTORY

 A Brief history of the club.

After the 2nd World War, the Marist brothers purchased a piece of land just above the Liesbeek River in the suburb of Rondebosch.

The ground was turned into a sports club for war veterans and was known as the Marist War Memorial Club where members played bowls, football, and cricket.

The main interest was bowls and the first bowls match to place in 1949.

Marist brothers also built a large clubhouse on the land which housed a bar, Entertainment hall, and a bowls section within the main club. Cricket came later and the old farmhouse on the property was converted into a clubhouse for the cricket and football.

The Main club was a source of entertainment and a venue used for weddings, birthday parties, and sports functions

The club and bar had been operating from 1949 until 2008 due to a decline in membership the club was approached by a property developer to convert some of the lands into a residential complex but the Marist club would retain a portion of the ground for a new clubhouse, cricket oval and a bowling green.

This process took almost ten years of discussions with the city council the local residence and the existing club and in January 2017 work on the site started which meant the demolishing of the existing clubhouse and surrounding buildings and the construction of a new clubhouse and new bowls pavilion and new playing fields

Marist War Memorial Sports Club has been in existence for just under 70 years and has lived in harmony with the surrounding residents hopefully the new development will provide facilities within the estate to support and encourage green living.

Memoirs: The formation of the Marist War Memorial Club.

 "As a schoolboy, I was used as a postman between my father and the Principal of St Josephs Marist Brothers, Brother Comwell/Cornell, while negotiations took place over the purchase of the dairy farm. The dairy farm had relocated and the entrance, which was at the bottom of Moolenberg Road, where the current Rawson units 

stand. To the south side was a building which was deemed a heritage site, now part of the unit."     Brian Alt.
