MORE ABOUT URBAN REC HUNTER

Urban Rec Hunter launched in Newcastle in 2019 with the aim of making sport fun, accessible and inclusive for everyone. We strive to be more than just sport and love the social aspect that sport brings with it. We stress the FUN aspect of playing sports with your friends. It really is all about getting out, meeting people, and generally having a good time.

Urban Rec has one goal: to provide the best possible experience to our members. Whether it's league nights, theme parties, team trips, social gatherings, or other Urban Rec events, we want to provide an unparalleled experience that you'll remember forever.

Choose a sport, choose a location and join us for a 10-week season that goes well above and beyond what you’d expect. This is not your regular sports club!
