A Probus club is a local association of retired and semi-retired professional and business men. The name is an amalgamation of the abbreviation of the words PROfessional and BUSiness. It started in the 1960s and is now a world-wide organisation. Our aim is to provide a regular meeting point for retired professional and business men.
Dorridge Probus Club started in 1975 as Knowle and Dorridge Probus. Increasing numbers lead to Knowle forming their own club, and the two have coexisted amicably ever since.
After a few changes of venue, since our founding, we now meet at the Copt Heath Golf Club. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month starting at 12 noon for 12.45, with a meal first followed by a talk. Ladies’ Days are held twice a year, and there is an AGM in February.
