In August we were super proud to announce Wandsworth Demons as our Sports Club of the Month. YABBA stocked their bars, sponsored the YABBA Beer Player of the Match and got involved in their incredible fundraising efforts in the fight against MND.
The Wandsworth Demons are the largest Aussie rules football team outside of Australia with 3 men’s and 2 women’s teams playing in all 5 divisions in AFL London. Our home ground is on Clapham Common, right in the heart of South London. We were apart of the first ever season of AFL London back in 1990 and have been going strong ever since.
This year saw a record number of members playing for the club which was an incredibly effort after a difficult 18months with the pandemic. Many of their members had to leave the UK prematurely so to rebound and recruit new members was something we are really proud of. It was a shortened season this year but as a huge result for they club they managed to get 4 out of our 5 teams into grand finals, the most of any other club in London. Of the four, Wandsworth managed to win one of the finals in what was horrendous conditions! Adding to an already impressive trophy case.
They’ll be hosting some taster sessions in Nov/Dec this year before they start back weekly trainings on Sundays from mid January 2022. They welcome all skill levels and abilities! Plenty of space for anyone down at the Demons.
They are also very, VERY social. So if you are more interested in the off field activities than you won’t be short of people to have a YABBA with!
