We all want to feel connected, we all want to belong, we all want a sense of community.

We all NEED connection to thrive in life. Fact. We are social creatures. Even introverts have social connection needs.

Yet our busy lives, technology and the hangover of the C word (Covid, we mean Covid!), have all disrupted how and where we find our tribe. Making new friends has actually become harder.

That is why we are LOVING what one organisation has ignited in Wollongong (they did it in Sydney first, it worked so well they’ve brought it to The Gong!)

If you want to:

  • make new mates
  • have more social opportunities to get out and about
  • feel a sense of belonging in the Gong
  • and even get a bit fitter, then let us introduce you to….

URBAN REC! Wollongong’s Social Club. They find you a fun sporting team of like minded locals, who you can have fun times with on and off the pitch.

Even if you are time poor, you’ll achieve fitness and fun in one hit. Plus you’ll make friends in a non awkward way!

So, it’s non competitive sport (onus is on FUN and team stuff). You can join as an individual (although teams can register too) and choose from 8 different types of sports. All levels and abilities are welcome at Urban Rec Wollongong. With indoor or outdoor venues and traditional or non-traditional sports, there is truly something for everyone!

Join the many hundreds of friendly locals who have chosen from:

  1. BASKETBALL
  2. BEACH VOLLEYBALL
  3. DODGEBALL
  4. FLAG GRIDIRON
  5. MULTISPORT
  6. NETBALL
  7. SOCCER
  8. TOUCH FOOTBALL
  9. And guess what else? Their WINTER Indoor Sports Leagues are now open for individual and team registration HERE!
