Teamwork makes the dream!

Teamwork makes the dream! Image

More than 380 inner-city Melburnians have spent their lunch break competing in the Active Melbourne City Sports netball, basketball and soccer sports competition at the Docklands sports courts.

The spring season grand finals are currently upon us and the competition is certainly heating up.

Taking out the winner’s Docklands Netball trophy recently was Stantec’s Mixed Monties.

The Monties didn’t let Melbourne’s relentless heat get the better of them and continued to play a competitive game to win 18-10 over Lion Pride at the Docklands sports courts in late November.

Team captain, Kanishka Perera and the Monties continue to thoroughly enjoy the Active Melbourne City Sports program, saying the competition was “a well-organised initiative, a great excuse to get out of the office and has now become a big part of who they are”.

The Monties have proudly hung their first-place trophy on their Stantec reception display wall and are off to celebrate their win before returning to the courts next season.

In true basketball grand-final style, Spiire Red battled it out against rivalries Sharp & Carter and came out on top with a 19 to 6 win!

Making their Active Melbourne City Sports basketball grand debut, the fierce, focused yet friendly Spiire Red team showed us how it was done in its first season of the three versus three competition.

Spiire team captain, James Fearn, said the grand final highlight was during the first quarter – “our passing and defence was so good that it set us up for the rest of the game”.

Mr Fearn said that the most valuable player award would have to go to Fraser Ambrose.

“He was unstoppable with rebounds, Matt Bradbury = Mr Consistent!” he said.

Spiire enjoys the healthy competition and sees the lunch time program as a great way to keep active during the week and connect with, not only their internal team, but also a great opportunity to meet other companies across the city.

Spiire registered both a soccer and netball team in the spring competition and is looking forward to the upcoming autumn season, where it will be back, better than ever.

Team registrations are now open for the upcoming 2018 autumn season, which will start in February.
