Since 2011 Watsonia Heights has grown from a club that only fielded 11 junior teams and 3 senior teams to now be the biggest sporting club in the Banyule area. We have the largest playing base of any other club of any code. We have the largest number of female players of any club in Banyule area and the largest mixture of girls to boys ratio in the state. We run roughly double the state average. We are now proud to Field 21 Junior teams, 2 women’s and 4 men’s senior teams. Junior numbers are anticipated to be around 400 for 2020 and 500 soon after. In 2020, we celebrate our 50th year of being a successful community sporting club but also WHFC has become the first club in Victoria to partner with an Italian Football Club: Pescara Calcio. This partnership brings many opportunities to WHFC that will allow our players to grow and have access to professional European coaches and staff to assist with their development at WHFC.

“For it’s a grand old team to play for
and it’s a grand old team to see
d if, you know, your history

Its enough to make your heart go-oh-woe-woe-woe
We don’t care what the other team say
What the hell do we care
Cause we only know that there’s gonna be a show and the Watsonia boys
(girls) will be there.”
