About us

Our Story

From its humble beginnings in 1973, The Riverina Australian Football Club, affectionately called The Rules Club, was founded to assist the growth of Australian Football in Wagga Wagga and the wider Riverina region.

Since 1973 the Club has seen several transformations to what it is today – an ultra-modern, refurbished Club with a Bistro, Café, Accommodation, Function Rooms, Sports Bar, Gaming Room, Bowling Greens and Entertainment three nights a week.

Today The Rules Club Wagga offers all its members and guests an excellent venue for socialising and meeting with your family and friends, great meals and drinks at a reasonable price, fantastic live entertainment, and a safe and pleasant atmosphere with friendly and courteous staff.

It really is a Club where everything is all about you.
