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 – MANAGING DIRECTOR
Mads is the Aussie founder of Urban Rec and has spent the last 9 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 MALONY – SPORTS admin director
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.
DANNY SKIDMORE – GENERAL MANAGER
Danny is an experienced sports professional with years of Rugby under his belt, he brings lots of experience around creating communities, member experience, and sports coaching. His skillset is in building social experiences, but he is also very good at disciplining the dickheads. He hails from Birmingham and most people struggle to understand what he’s saying.
RAJ PANCHAL, LEAGUE MANAGER
Raj is our newest League Manager in Sydney and comes from a background in customer service. He is super helpful, and focused on creating a great experience for our members. Out and about at leagues and Raj is making friends with everyone. He loves his cricket, big lunches, selfies, chammomile tea, helicopter parenting his dog and wattle bottles.
RYAN DANNE – ASSISTANT LEAGUE MANAGER
Ryan “Rowdy” is our newest HQ staffie with a degree in Sports Management. Out at leagues he is our enforcer and behind the scenes he is in charge of keeping all our ducks in a row. He is a really handy guy to have around, actually. He goes alright at Cricket and in the pub … hence the name “Rowdy”.
DANIEL LIVERMORE, NETBALL LEAGUE LIAISON
Dan has been working with Urban Rec since inception (basically). He is our Netball Manager and a very experienced player, host and coach. He works closely with our League Management team to deliver an exceptional and varied Netball product across Sydney. He is the most detailed person you might ever meet, and his dry humour will leave you wondering if he is your best friend or worst foe.
JEMIMA TROUT – FINANCE MANAGER
Jemima is an articulate and fanatic CFO. She has years of experience working in international companies as a corporate highflyer boss lady. She is passionate about getting shit done and also loves a bevvie and cracking jokes like a bogan. Jemima is also Mum of 2 kids and can juggle anything you throw at her. Except of course if you throw anything sport related.
On top of that, we have a wonderful team of Event Hosts who make Urban Rec league nights an epic experience. Here are just a few familiar faces!
