Meet The Team

mANAGEMENT TEAM

We have an amazing team at Urban Rec HQ that works hard behind the scenes to ensure that everyone’s experience is the best it can possibly be. Here are a few familiar faces. If you haven’t shared a drink with any of these peeps then you aren’t doing it right. 

MADELEINE WILKIE, MANAGING DIRECTOR

Say g'day to Mads, the Aussie powerhouse behind Urban Rec Aus! For the past 12 years, she's been on a mission to unite people through epic events and unforgettable experiences. From thrilling tournaments to laid-back socials, Mads knows how to throw a party like no other!  But here's the kicker – despite being the mastermind behind all things sports and recreation, Mads is hilariously hopeless when it comes to playing herself!  Yep, you heard it right – she's not exactly MVP material. But hey, that's what makes her the perfect embodiment of Urban Rec's spirit – she's all about giving it a go, having fun, and embracing the joy of play, even if it involves a few (or many) fumbles along the way! So, here's to Mads – the ultimate champion of bringing people together, one laugh, and one clumsy kick at a time!

DANNY SKIDMORE, GENERAL MANAGER

Introducing Danny, the seasoned sports pro with a knack for building communities and crafting unforgettable member experiences! With years of Rugby wisdom under his belt, he's like the Yoda of social sports – wise, experienced, and always ready to pass on his knowledge. But here's the twist – Danny's not just about the game; he's also a master at dealing with the rowdy riff-raff and brewing up a mean cuppa! Whether he's leading the team to records or keeping the troublemakers in line, Danny's got it all covered. And let's not forget his Midlands charm – though some may struggle to decipher his accent, everyone can agree that Danny's the heart and soul of the team, bringing warmth, laughter, and plenty of brews to the table!

But don't let his playful demeanor fool you – behind closed doors, Ryan is a young man with an old soul, our resident retiree in disguise. Yet, despite his affinity for cozy nights in, Ryan's no stranger to a good time, especially when it involves cricket on the field or a pint at the pub. It's no wonder they call him "Rowdy"! So, next time you're up for some banter and a cold one, be sure to catch Ryan for a beer
