Reclink Community Cup

Sydney’s second newest cross town rivalry heads into its second year with the Reclink Community Cup being staged at the picturesque Henson Park in Marrickville on Sunday August 25th.

The Reclink Community Cup is a family-friendly day that last year in Melbourne alone raised over $70,000 for charity, rising to $100,000 plus in 2013. With Sydney embracing a rapidly growing AFL culture and it’s very own top-flight intra-city rivalry, The Reclink Community Cup is becoming a buzz topic across the Harbour City.

Why I Play: Winning Entry #1

"I like to Kayak and try to get out as regularly as I can. I find the exercise suits me as it is fun, quite aerobic, and puts my mind in a very relaxed state and peaceful place. I need to work out aerobically but my knees are in poor condition so running is not an option for me. Recently I have ventured onto the Cook's River and enjoyed working against the mild current and seeing the revitalization of this inner west waterway." - Darren, 1 May 2013
