An Australian football club that began as a YCW football club in 1946 will hold a reunion for past members and players on 1 May.

The club merged with Lake Wendouree Football Club in 1994 and is now known under this name.

Lake Wendouree president Gavin Maher said interest in the reunion, which will coincide with the Lakers' first home match of the season, had created a challenge for organisers.

"We've probably had anywhere between 300 and 500 that have indicated they might be there," Maher said.

"We need to have some idea of final numbers. If an extra 200 people turn up on the door it would help to know about it, for the sake of the caterers."

The YCW Football Club passed into history when it merged with Wendouree in 1994 to form the Lakers.

The YCW in Ballarat diocese was a longstanding member movement of the Australian YCW.
