Ready for the finals?

It’s the AFL Grand Final weekend, and our staff are ready for the game!

On Wednesday, for the 14th year in a row, the Allied Health team at Broadmeadows Hospital ran an event day for clients and staff to celebrate the AFL Grand Final.

Clients enjoyed a variety of activities including a handball target, kicking for goal, quoits, basketball, ten pin bowling, croquet and a bean bag throw.  Winning clients are awarded with medals for being the top scorers.

Craig Whitbourne, Senior Clinician Exercise Physiologist, said that staff competition was again very fierce this year.  Up to ten different teams were fighting for the right to keep the Broadmeadows Hospital event day trophy in their department for the next 12 months.

“The footy quiz challenged all the teams and their knowledge of our great game. This was followed by a handball competition and an interesting obstacle course with egg and spoon, basketball, dodging objects and bean bag throwing.  The volunteer team had a big fall from grace – after winning last year they fell to last this year. Unit 3 recruited a past AFL great / premiership player but they fell just short and into second place,” he said.

And the winner is … the Physiotherapy Department. Congratulations!


The AFL games day will be held at Northern Health Bundoora today.
