Club History

Unfortunately in 1994, a fire destroyed BJP’s Head Office Building and a lot of records were lost, so we are unsure when Mascot Physical Culture Club started.
However, we do have documentation showing that BJP Physical Culture was in the Mascot area in 1949. We also have certificates that go back as far as 1975.
