Recently I had the opportunity to see some real action on the soccer field – well the cut-down 5-a-side soccer field. It was fascinating and action packed. Most of all it was very well organised and the participants were obviously enjoying themselves. This, and several other activities are organised by SportUP, Brisbane's largest social sports club with almost 6,000 members enjoying organised sporting competitions and fitness classes across Brisbane.
If you are looking for some sport mixed in with some socialisation then SportUP is your solution.
With a mission to help young professionals break up their work week and meet people playing sport, SportUP is a fantastic way to keep fit, enjoy some stress release, laugh lots and meet plenty of like-minded new friends.
Currently, SportUP has spaces available for individuals and teams to join in the fun of four team sports at several venues. Sports, venues and nights available are:
Toowong, Mondays and Thursdays, played outdoors; Yeronga, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, played outdoors on 4G Astroturf; Kedron, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, played indoors on a multi-purpose court; and Bardon, Wednesdays, played indoors on a concrete court.
Brisbane City with free parking available, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, played indoors on a wooden court; Bardon, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, played indoors on a multi-purpose court; Kedron, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, played indoors on a multi-purpose court; and West End, Wednesdays, played on two indoor wooden courts.
SportUP has partnered with Premier and City Touch competitions and organises for individual players to join either of these competitions. Between them, they have over 10 venues running from Monday to Thursday nights so there's no problem for anybody who wants to join a team and play close to home.
Premier Touch conducts an 11 to 13 weeks season with each team playing once a week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday nights. Games are currently being held at Bardon, Fairfield, Mt Gravatt, West End and Zillmere.
City Touch goes for a longer season that runs for 16 to 17 weeks, based on two eight weeks seasons, with games being played on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights at Ashgrove, Colmslie, Enoggera, Mt Gravatt, Stafford and Newmarket.
Neither of the comps discriminate so if you're just starting out or should be playing for the Broncos, you are welcome to join in.
No matter what you choose pricing is simple. Individuals can pay for the full season up front or by monthly instalments that work out to $17.50 a week.and teams pay $89 per week for basketball and soccer or $99 per week for netball. Everything is covered by this one fee with no extra membership charges, insurance or referee fees – too simple!
Here's all you need to do:

Everything for an enjoyable evening of sport is fully organised. All you and your mates have to do is turn up with your game face on.
In the unlikely event it turns out you don't enjoy your first session you can get a full refund of the fee paid.

As Abraham Lincoln said, "It's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." Staying fit and enjoying yourself at the same time is certainly a great way to put a meaningful life into your years.
