Urban Rec - Vancouver, Okanagan, and Australia's Sport and Social Club

Oh Hey! What a marvellous deicison to join Sydney’s most fun, social, and cool comp.  (Are we still cool if we are saying it about ourselves? Unlikely). But,  join anyway, the other 6,000 members think we’re OK. 

By creating an Urban Rec member account you will have the choice to agree to receive periodic emails from Urban Rec. We send info to all our members about leagues, tournaments and events. Each e-mail gives you the chance to opt-out cos we don’t wanna be in your inbox if you’re not feeling it. If you are on a team roster – you might get an email regardless, because how else will you know about important info?

Everyone who plays or joins in anywhere, anytime with Urban Rec, must have an account and have read our waiver and code of conduct (below). 

Oh – You must be at least 18 years of age in order to participate in any Urban Rec League or event. Sorry kids!
