MADELEINE WILKIE – MANAGING DIRECTOR
Mads is the Aussie founder of Urban Rec and has spent the last 5 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.

Leish is a household name in Canberra, she loves sports – especially Netball – and is super passionate about making sport accessible for all of our members. Leish is eveyone’s bestie and will always go out of her way to make everyone’s league nights epic. With a background in adminstration, Leish is the queen of keeping HQ organised, but thrives with being at one with the people.
