About HBG

Established in October 1955 to support the Western Suburbs District Rugby League Football Club, Western Suburbs Leagues Club Limited (now trading as Holman Barnes Group) has steadily grown from it’s very small beginnings. Commencing operations in a small building located on what is now one of our carparks, we grew and underwent our first major redevelopment in the early 60s and in October 2002 operations moved into the current Wests Ashfield building.

Our three clubs (Wests Ashfield, Croydon Sports and Markets Club) are conveniently located, providing a large variety of entertainment facilities, including function rooms and state-of-the-art dining options.

Holman Barnes Group is committed to providing high standards of service delivery, ongoing support to the local community and providing the best general entertainment and hospitality services for our diverse membership.

Our membership has grown steadily over the years and is now recognised as one of the most culturally diverse of any Club. With a proud tradition of providing quality service, we have a strong commitment to improving and expanding business operations and extending the range and quality of services we offer.

Holman Barnes Group and subsidiaries strive to operate with a culture of ethical and appropriate behaviour across all of our business activities. This includes conducting ourselves with integrity, honesty and fairness. We work closely with Core Integrity Pty Ltd on industry-leading integrity risk solutions to ensure we comply with all relevant laws, regulations, codes and corporate standards as per our Code of Conduct.
