Celebrating 10 years of Bounce

Footy is back...and so is Bounce of the Ball!

Summer is no doubt one of the best times of the year in Melbourne, but there's one thing lacking...footy. 

For all you die-hard AFL fans, we know it can be a long wait from the last siren in September to the first bounce in March, but don't worry we've got you  covered.

The debut of the new season is fast approaching and the anticipation is getting real. Make the wait more bearable and book your tickets to the hottest football charity luncheon in 2020. 

This year we are incredibly excited to announce Windermere Ambassador Matthew Richardson, Sharni Layton and Bachar Houli as our panel of guest speakers, facilitated by MC, Nigel Carmody

Join us in the prestige Members Dining Room on Tuesday 17 March, at the home of football, as we celebrate our 10th Annual Bounce of the Ball Lunch.

One of Richmond's most experienced and reliable defenders, Houli was an integral part of the Tiger's 2017 premiership success and was recognised as a top performer in their Grand Final win. The AFL's first devout muslim player, off-field Bachar has developed a number of successful multicultural programs for young aspiring athletes, each with a unique focus on football development, employment, leadership and identity.
