Bothwell Rabbits AFL logo
Established in the 1880s, the Bothwell Rabbits compete in the Oatlands District Football Association.

At the end of the 2005 season 3 clubs – Oatlands, Kempton and Bothwell – decided to resign from the ODFA, merge with each other and joined the SFL Regional League as the Central Hawks from 2006.

In September 2012 Bothwell split from its merger of the Central Hawks. As a club spokesman said, “There has only been two games a season in Bothwell. We had sort of lost the community aspect of the club so it was decided last September the club would try to re-form.”
