Western United Powerchair Come and Try Day


Western United is holding its second Come and Try Day this Saturday, 27 March for its inaugural powerchair football team.

The Come and Try Day allows anyone who uses a wheelchair and interested in playing sport and meeting new people to get a taste of what Powerchair football is all about.

Western United’s Schools, Clubs and Community Manager Pete Bradley said the club was delighted with the turn out from the first Come and Try Day.

“We are excited to be holding a second come and try day and hope to build on the interest from last month’s event where we had seven new players, which blew us away, it was fantastic,” Bradley said.

“At tomorrow’s event we expect four additional players to come and join us, which is great and means we will hopefully be able to field two teams in the next Powerchair season.

“The players who have joined us are mixed ages and hopefully in the future we can get some females involved.”

Western United announced its entry to the Pride Mobility Victorian Powerchair League (VPL) last month, joining Melbourne City and South Melbourne FC for the 2021 season.

The team will be mixed gender and for all ages and will be coached by passionate United fan Brooke Muscat.
