The Bondi Icebergs is the only licensed Winter Swimming Club in the world, dating back to 1929 & owing its origin to a band of local life savers with a desire to maintain their fitness during the Winter months.
The band of live savers formed the Bondi Icebergs Winter Swimming Club, drew up a constitution and elected office bearers. To maintain membership, they created "Rule 15B", declaring it mandatory for swimmers to compete on three out of four Sundays for a period of five years.
The Bondi Icebergs become licensed in 1960 and the members moved from a tin shed into comfortable premises with bar & poker machines. A further update took place in the 1970’s enabling the Club to operate on two floors. In 1995 female members were admitted, and in 2002 the Club opened their new premises.
Since its beginning back in 1929, the Club has forged a reputation as one of Australia’s most famous Clubs.We stand on the shoulders of giants & would not be the iconic Bondi Icebergs Club without our rich legacy.
Our history pages are dedicated to those Icebergs who have passed on since we began back in 1929.
To name them all would not be possible, to endeavour to would not be fair to those who might be omitted.
To our past Presidents, Vice-Presidents, Captains, Vice-Captains, Hon. Secretaries, Assist. Secretaries, Hon. Treasurers, Assist. Treasurers, Social Secretaries, Directors and Racing Officials we express the Club’s sincerest thanks and appreciation for their efforts.
To our vast number of active, active reserve, long serving and associate members for being one of us, we thank you all for helping make the club what it is today and add to the memories of the years gone by.
