Priority Re-Registration now offers discount for returning teams

October 19, 2017 - 4 days ago

We are very excited to be offering a NEW way for our returning teams to get added value. PLENTY of you have been playing within Urban Rec leagues for years – so we have found away to give you a little back, for the upcoming Summer season. 

Priority Registration is for any team that want to play with Urban Rec next season. Not only will you secure your spot ahead of any other Urban Rec members, or the general public, you will now get $60-100 off team rego. 

Here’s how it works. 

On Monday November 20th at 9am Priority Rego will open. Your team Captain will use their secret link to access registration, and the discounted fees. Priority Rego will be open for 7 days.

On Monday November 27th at 12noon all remaining team spaces will be available online and all prices will revert to regular seasonal fees. (Still a good price, but not a special price, ya know). 

That’s it!

Heres a few questions we reckon you’ll ask. 

What about individual players, do they get a discount? Sorry – individual rego remains the same price. If you and your team from last season are looking at  re-registering, consider doing it together as a team. 

What if we cannot get the team commiteed, and paid by that time? This one is especially for the organised and committed teams – you can start talking to your team now about next season so you don’t miss out. 

What if my team are signed up for Soccer, but we want to return into Dodgeball (for example)? We will co-ordinate your team to move sports and get you re-registered within priority rego period. Simply shoot us an email as it’s a bit of a trick on our end!

What if I am not the Captain, and I am going to be taking over the team next season? Make sure your Captain for the current season assigns you as Captain, and you will have access to the priority rego link to carry the team onwards!

How do we know when next season starts? Your Captains will be notified of next season start dates in their Captains chat – they are subject to change due to rain-outs or other re-shedules that can happen, but generally only a few weeks either side. The summer season generally runs Jan-Apr. Here are the tentative Summer start dates.

Urban Rec is coming Canberra and here's why you'll love it

September 13, 2017 - one month ago

Urban Rec is heading to Canberra if you’re from Sydney you probably already know what Urban Rec is all about. So what can Urban Rec bring to Canberra and why will Urban Rec be different in the most active city in Australia?

We run EPIC events- Urban Rec is kicking off in Canberra with a Beach Sports Party to show the city what we are all about. Sport, Food and beers on the beach, on a Sunday arvo it’s going to be amazeballs. One off events are not all we do, we run season ender parties at the end of each league, we plan and run some crazy Christmas parties and team building events. We can’t wait to show Canberra how social sports and parties mix.

We are a SOCIAL sports club- We play sport to have fun, we try not to make it too competitive. We love to share an orange at half time with the opposition and a beer after the game.

Don’t have a team? That doesn’t matter- Canberra is packed with people who moved here from interstate or overseas. At Urban Rec we give you the opportunity to register as an individual and we will hook you up with a team of other individuals who will become your new Canberra BFF’s.

Sport done DIFFERENTLY- We put our own little twist on sports so if you’ve never played before that doesn’t matter, neither has anyone else. We’re bringing the first Beach Soccer and Beach Touch Footy leagues to Canberra, Street Soccer is soccer but with prison rules, we’ve all seen the movie Dodgeball it’s the same but Ben & Owen are yet to register. Multisport is like the triathlon of ball sports but with more than 3 disciplines.

Subs- Want to play sport 5 nights a week? Urban Rec members get entry to our Subs Facebook group. When teams are missing a player you can sub in and try a new sport for free. We are the only sports club in Canberra that runs multiple sports over multiple nights that you can be a part of.

Sunday Arvo’s at the beach- Did you even know Canberra had a beach? We are creating Canberra’s favourite Sunday Activity head down to the beach between 3pm-5pm to play in Beach Volleyball and Beach Soccer leagues and chill out in the Canberra sun.

Want the run down of everything you can be a part of in Canberra this spring check it out here.

Things we do that no one seems to know about

September 4, 2017 - one month ago

Sometimes it’s frightening how little our members know about the added perks we offer to our members. Seriously, lets get this shizzle out in the open…. 

End of season Social Events and Parties

​​We bust our little booties to bring you great social events and parties every season. Think Holey Moley Golf, Bowls n Beers, Backyard 90’s Parties, and Beach Parties to be envied. Our upcoming event to say ‘sayonara’ to Winter is The Social Serve. This event is purely for your enjoyment! We make no money off them, we just do these events so our members can enjoy some much needed recreation, chillax time with their team mates, and a chance to socialise with all the Urban Rec Members.

FREE games as a sub across any UR league

Unlike other providers, we facilitate a subs page for you to be able to participate and play for FREE as an Urban Rec member. Every night you can be sure teams are posting looking for players, and that means YOU get free game time, free fitness, and a chance to meet new people and try a new sport. Try before you buy mannnnn. 

Discounts at any UR Clubhouse

We have hand-picked, sampled, and selected the best venues in Sydney for post game beverages. Our Clubhouses offer great discounts for UR members. Like some are good, but some are GREAT. Seriously, in this very expensive Sydney lifestyle. Take advantage people!

Entry for FREE into any of our Season Ender Tournaments

Another collection of events that take a butt-ton of work, which we run for the love of it. These tournaments are FREE and not only are the teams who play in the leagues welcome, ALL of the players across any night or venue can get involved, and play for FREE and FUN! Here is a list of the upcoming Tournaments we are running. 

  • Flag Gridiron

Period 4 is all about rest and recovery. This is where we cool-down, chillout, and give that body some TLC. We will take you through some flow, some yoga and the worlds greatest stretch. Take a moment to think about how good you just did, and high five your team mates.

Here is what is offer for the next few weeks of Touch Football.  If you and your team are considering registering, but you are still working on payment, please let me know ASAP so I can secure your team space for one of the leagues you see below. 


Mondays – A new mixed league at Camdenville Park, St Peters which is specifically for teams that are new, or have only played 1-2 seasons. This league is really for the purpose that new people can come in and try the league but not feel intimidated. Can you play if you are an experienced team? Yes! But be aware the skill level is RECREATIONAL. Fun, easy games. 


Thursdays – The existing Thursday night league played at varying locations in the Inner West (Camperdown, Marrickville, etc, depending on council availability). This league is for intermediate, and recreational players and teams. Meaning you will probably play teams who have played Touch in previous seasons and generally have a good ability. 


Wednesdays – Federal Park, Glebe. This is going to be a varied mixed-gender season, meaning all abilities will be welcome. We will have 8-10 teams, so we can re-seed the season, meaning you play teams to your level in the final 3 weeks.

Urban Race Comes to Spark Festival

June 8, 2017 - 4 months ago

Urban Race is your opportunity to spend yourlunch break with a partner competing in a one of a kind urban adventure race. You'll need to think on your feet and use your brain to solve puzzles, riddles and clues from a clue sheet to find 10 destinations, think of it like a scavenger hunt featuring fitness challenges, and also an opportunity to learn about unique new fitness companies in our city. 

Urban Race will be happening all week from Monday 16th October till Friday 21 October from 12noon till 2pm. 

Urban Race, is celebrated as part of Spark Festival. Let Urban Rec take you on a tour of all the new, innovative, and disruptive Fitness, Health, and Sport businesses operating in Sydney!  This amazing race adventure is for amateurs, athletes and everyone in between. 

This race is great for first timers and rookie runners because you run on your own, at your own pace. Nobody enjoys traffic jams, so our courses and destinations are designed with fluidity in mind. Being the fastest runner might not mean you win the race, as the clues and challenges will alter at each checkpoint. 

Participants will have the option of running the 5km course, or walking – that’s up to you. You are free to use any method at your disposal to solve the clues and find the destinations (think smart phone, tablet, phone a friend, ask locals etc.), but you must reach them by foot (no bikes, skateboards, busses, taxis etc.) 

At each checkpoint, you will have a task you need to complete – this could be a fitness challenge, a clue to solve, or an activity to overcome. You'll get to see corners and a history of the city you probably didn't know existed, and you'll have a blast doing it! 

Teams will be made up of 2 people, so when you buy your ticket, you are buying a team of 2 participants, $60 per team to enter into the race ($30pp). 

The race will begin, and end in Martin Place, so you will be able to participate in your lunch break, and be back in the office in under a few hours! Check in and packet pick up starts at 11:00 AM and race will start promptly at 12:00 PM You will need to bring a smart phone, ID and a pen or pencil. Everyone gets an event shirt and sponsor provided swag. 

The winning team each day will win a goodie bag full of crazy-good sponsored items, which will be to the value of $500!

To register, head over to our Events Page, and get you and your team mate locked in!
