The Oatley Amateur Swimming Club began in 1927 on the sandy beach of Jew Fish Bay in a small area protected from sharks with iron mesh netting. Over the decades the club held swimming competitions and social events, drawing people from all over Sydney. It continues to flourish, with over 100 members who meet regularly during the summer for swimming competitions and social events.
