History of Guildford Greystanes
Guildford Greystanes Physie was established in 1956 by founding teacher Isabel Bugden at 16 years of age, who made the club successful across all of Australia in both teams and individuals.
The club remains to be one of the longest established BJP clubs remaining and has experienced much success in team and individual competitions, maintaining a position in championship level for many years.
Mrs. Bugden remained a long standing teacher at the club for over 57 years until her death in 2013. Many wonderful teachers built on the foundation created by Mrs. Bugden, to ensure Guildford Physie remains in the strong position it does today.
