Six sports. 500 players. One active city Image

Active Melbourne is calling on workers to register to play in friendly matches with other Docklands corporate teams in the upcoming season.

Now in its 10th year, Active Melbourne City Sports offers a wide variety of sports programs, including soccer, netball and basketball.

The program is designed to encourage a healthy, active lifestyle for inner-city employees.

In the past season, it has attracted 143 corporate teams, featuring more than 500 participants. Active Melbourne City Sports has an autumn and spring season that runs for 14 weeks, plus finals.

The program takes place five days a week at Docklands Sports Courts around lunchtime or after work, with teams competing from ANZ, Myer, Medibank, NAB, V/Line, AFL and it is open to everyone.

The autumn season grand finals have just concluded with Matthew Quattrocchi, captain of V/Line’s Railers basketball team, leading the team to victory on Wednesday, June 21.

This is Matthew’s first season as a team captain and he is thoroughly enjoying the program. Matthew said: “The lunch time format is good. It helps workers to become more active and encourages plenty of networking opportunities, with colleagues I wouldn’t normally interact with.”

The Active Melbourne City Sports program also runs five days per week at Flagstaff Gardens. In addition to soccer, netball and basketball, this competition offers dodgeball, barefoot bowls and even urban street cricket.

Teams have until Friday, July 21 to sign up, with the season starting on Monday, July 31.
