UPDATED August 26
The NSW Government announced this morning that Regional NSW will be in further lockdown until September 10. This unfortunately means that we are unable to play sport until this date. Leagues have been put on hold until September 10 and schedules have been updated to show this.
We will be recommencing our Winter leagues to start September 13 and our Spring leagues are scheduled to start in later October.
Once the Government end the lockdown in Regional NSW, we will get in contact with all our Winter league participants.
UPDATED August 19
As you would have heard, Newcastle and all of Regional NSW is in lockdown until at least August 28.
Leagues have been put on hold until then and we are planning to play all games that have been scheduled for the winter season as soon as we are out of lockdown.
Once the Government clarify the end of lockdown for the Newcastle Region, we will then get in contact with you about when our winter leagues will be re-starting.
While we are in Newcastle, we recognize there are a lot of people commute to Sydney for work or leisure, and due to the spike in COVID cases seen in the recent days in the Greater Sydney Region, we wanted to take a moment to explain our stance and response.
First off, please recognize that we are constantly monitoring the situation, and we are taking all of our directives from the State and Federal Governments and health agencies. This is a fluid issue that we are reacting and responding to with the best of our ability based on available information.

The Winter Blues are here and many people might be experienceing them already. Some people may be feeling a little down, lacking energy, changed sleeping patterns, struggling to get out of bed. The cooler months make us want to hibenate and wish the 3 months will fly by.
It’s important to keep a routine through winter and make sure your body is active or you will undo all the hard work you put in to your health and fitness in Summer and Autumn this year.
Tip for teams: If your team is currently playing an outdoor sport and are really not feeling like playing outside again in Winter, then join one of the many indoor sports we have running. You’ll be able to see your mates once a week and keep up your fitness. It’s a win win.Learn More

The most common question we get asked is.. What is Multisport!?
It’s pretty simple really, you play multiple sports across the 10 week competition! There are two types of Multisport competitions that we run. Field Multisport which is played outdoors at Waratah Park and then we have Indoor Multisport which is played Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights at Revolution Sports Park in Maryville.
The Multisport competition is for the individual or team that can’t commit or decide on just one sport. You play in the same team each week but your team wil rotate through the changing sports together.
Indoor Multisport can include the following sports
Field Multisport can include the following sports
If you haven’t played sport in a while or are trying to work out which sport you like, then Multisport is your best option. The competition is full of very social people who are all there to have a good time, meet new people and get active doing it.

The winter season isn’t great, we all know that. The best way to beat those winter blues is to commit to a team/sport for the season. It’ll make you accountable to yourself and to your team and on those nights when you don’t feel like getting up off the couch, it will make it all worth it when you are on the court, laughing with your mates and getting fit.
Have a look at all the leagues we are running through Winter and find one that suits you.

Urban Rec has increased our prices this season, and we would like to take this opportunity to explain.
As a club we have not increased our team fees for a year now. In that time every over-head associated with running our leagues and sports club have inflated beyond what is sustainable with the current registration fee rate. Although the fee increase to our members happened from one season to the next, the costs incurred to us as a club has been rising for years.
Individual registration fee:
On average the fee increase for a 10 week season has increased $10 for the entire 10 game season, in other words $1 per game. We have also added the UR Draft that you get free access to. See below for more information about this new program.
Team Registration fee;
The average increase in team fees has been between $80-$90 for the entire 10 week season. If you have a team of 8 people it’s only an increase of $1 – $2 per person per week.
The three most obvious overhead increases are court hire, staffing and insurances.
Although we are not technically a not-for-profit, our business model is run as such, with all profits re-invested in the club. We rely on volume and return customers - not high profits.
We are really competitive when it comes to registration fees compared to the vast majority of our Industry. Our mission is to make sport accessible for everyone.
The other stuff we do as part of your fees? Urban Rec likes to offer all kinds of free or discounted opportunities for our members, things like; UR Awesome, Pub Nights, discounts at clubhouses, free jugs seasonally, Pri-Rego Promo’s, FreePlay nights, and social events (which run without profit also).
This is another perk that you now get when you sign up as an individual. Each Monday at 5pm we update the draft with a list of individual teams that need players for the season. Check out the link about the UR Draft for more information.
The bottom line is, we truly believe that what we deliver to our members exceeds any of our competitors in the sport and fitness industry – and we will always continue to offer value for money for our members.Learn More

This season we are adding another prize into the mix.
We have Fun Point Winners, we have League Champions and now we have MFP's!! We are adding another prize to our end of season winners.
Each week the host of your league will choose one player from the night as the MFP. An MFP is someone who is super fun, a great sportsperson, very inclusive and kind. At the end of the season, the player with the most votes for MFP from their host will get a rad prize.
To put it simply - Most Fun Player is a prize for being an amazing human. Ask your host what you can do to be an MFP this season.
