Orange Ex-Services’ Club has been proudly serving members and supporting our local community for over 60 years.
The Club has roots back to 1922 when returned World War I soldiers met at the rear of Orange’s Memorial Hall. The World War I diggers were later joined by World War II veterans, and together on 2nd June 1945, they formed a club known as the Orange Returned Servicemens’ Club, with a total of 35 members.
Today, the Club has 20,000 members and a strong vision and commitment to providing our members with the best service and facilities in regional NSW. As a not-for-profit community based organisation, we are dedicated to improving our community and operating in a socially responsible, professional and sustainable manner.
Orange Ex-Services’ Club operates two sites based at Anson Street and a Country Club at Forest Road, plus a tennis complex, Wade Park and sporting fields at Bloomfield.
Member facilities include various restaurants, cafes, bars, the latest design TAB with SKY Channel and FOX Sports, KENO, 4.5 STAR rated Mercure Orange hotel, 18-hole golf course, bowling green and 10 tennis courts.
The Club operates one of region’s largest and most renowned event centres. With a dedicated team of event managers, chefs and hosts, the Club has built a reputation of providing first class service and food.
``A Club is nothing without great people. And Orange Ex-Services' Club is proud to have a diverse collection of extraordinary people, who are focused on achieving one goal - creating experiences that engage, entertain and inspire our members.``
