Meet The Team
We have a crew of amazing people that work behind the scenes and down at fields to make your experience second to none. Here’s a few familiar faces. If you havent shared a drink with any of these lovely folk, you’re not doing it right ;)
MADELEINE WILKIE – THE BOSS
Mads is the Aussie founder of Urban Rec and has spent the last 5 years growing the club to where it is today. Her passion is bringing people together, and organising kick ass events. She is also, ironically… terrible at sports. She was never encouraged to play as a kid, and as a result, pretty much sucks at most sports, but loves trying.

Lindsay comes to Urban Rec with a wealth of experience from both North America and the Caribbean. Originally from the US, and a qualified physiotherapist, her passion is Soccer, Flag Gridiron, Ice Hockey and seeing the best in people. We call her our resident Care Bear because she is so damn nice to be around.
