Love is grand. We all know it. Hey you, don’t be cynical! This year we let our romantic side run wild and decided to sit down and have a chat with ONE OF MANY Urban Rec love stories.
So, we had a chat with Sunny, who – through being an Urban Rec host, met his current girlfriend, Tamara. We asked him to share a little bit about his experience of working for and then finding love though Urban Rec!
How long have you been hosting with UR, what sport do you host?
I’ve been hosting for around 1 year (although COVID was a factor). I’ve done roughly 2 full seasons though of touch and host Wed, Thurs and Sun on the regular now.
How did you meet Tamara and how long have you been dating?
We met at the UR staff party back in July (31st to be exact) and went on a date literally one week after. Guess things went well cause she didn’t leave me for the whole weekend haha! And we’ve kinda been seeing each other ever since.
How do you have time to see each other when you're hosting all the time?
We definitely make time to see each other and spend most nights together. We either host / play near the same venue or are lucky in that we have the same nights off so can see each other.
What's your favourite sport to play and host?
Love touch through and through. I started my UR ‘career’ playing touch in an indie team as I wanted to get back into sport and then somehow transitioned into hosting. It’s what I know best and I love the fast paced nature of it.
Tell us why online dating sucks? (if you know?)
You can’t get a true sense of character of someone over the internet, so much harder to break the ice and actually strike up a convo.
Do you think UR is a good place to meet potential suitors (for members and staff)?
Most definitely, you meet a wonderful variety of people and the clubhouses are a great way to get to know both your teammates (esp if you’re an indie team) and other teams that are there. There are so many wonderful people part of the UR family you’re bound to meet someone you connect with!
Whats your favourite thing about Tamara?
Honestly everything. She’s a ball of fun to be around and one of the sweetest persons. We can talk easily with each other and bounce off each other.
One weird/quirky/funny thing about Tamara?
She twitches while she falls asleep and sometimes wakes herself up by doing it! It’s adorable, cute, and quite funny at the same time. She’s also wildly competitive and CANNOT handle losing in any capacity, drives her mental and won’t talk to me!
