About Us

Mermaid Physie has been operating on the Gold Coast since 2002.  In that time we have welcomed hundreds of girls & woman, including generations of families through our doors. We are proudly associated with BJP Physie.

At Mermaid Physie our club culture thrives on collective pride, as everyone pitches in to create an inclusive, respectful, supportive & vibrant atmosphere! 

We positively encourage sporting contest and we encourage participation. Children and adults enjoy participating in sport – they enjoy learning new skills and putting them to the test. Striving to be the best is important but it is not the only reason for competing. 

BJP encourages all members and their families to be good sports. We aim to ensure that everyone gets a fair go and has fun. We believe in equality for all our members and we respect the rights, dignity and worth of everyone. You will find our association code of conduct HERE

Our club is an “Incorporated Association” & is facilitated by volunteers who have nominated & been elected into their positions. At Mermaid Physie, everyone is welcome.
