JOINING & RENEWALS

BE A PART OF YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY SURF CLUB!

The Torquay Surf Life Saving Club is located right on the shores of one the most popular and iconic beaches in Australia. First established in 1945, our club is one of the oldest clubs in Victoria, and has a rich history of World, National and State Life Saving Champions not to mention Olympic athletes! Our Nipper program is one of the biggest in the state, and has been operating for over 50 years now. Our Nippers love belonging to the club that sits right on the beach they visit with their family, they learn to navigate waves and work towards becoming patrollers on their own local beach.

Our club genuinely has something for everyone, of all ages, with opportunities to meet friends for life and give back to your community through social and fundraising events. What better place to be than right on your favourite beach every weekend!

Thank you for wanting to join our club, we can’t wait to have you on board.
