Engage Rotary. Change Lives.



The Probus movement had its genesis in two ancestors — both in the U.K. and both established by Rotary Clubs.

The first club in the South Pacific Region was the Probus Club of Kapiti Coast, New Zealand in 1974 followed by the Probus Club of Hunters Hill, NSW, Australia in 1976 and The Philippines in 2007.

Today there are 2,180 accredited Probus Clubs in the region with an estimated membership of 170,000

 Probus is an association of retired and semi-retired people who join together in Clubs, the basic purpose of which is to provide regular opportunities for them to keep their minds active, expand their interests and to enjoy the fellowship of new friends.

 Probus is proud to be a Community Service Activity of Rotary clubs.

District 9710 has 69 Probus clubs with a membership of 4682

Rotary clubs are encouraged to sponsor the formation of a new Probus club.
