The 2021 Line-Up: Sponsored Clubs


Last year wasn’t a great one for any sort of organised activity, and community sport was no different! Fortunately, we’re all starting 2021 on a much stronger footing, with training and pre-season games for all the Winter sports now underway in the lead up to Easter. Once again, we’ve proudly sponsored a number of local sporting clubs and associations, providing weekend physio and sport trainers to those listed below, and as a preferred physiotherapy provider to all.

Wanderers Rugby and Netball

Wanderers Rugby Football Club - Sponsored sport club

With our Newcastle physio clinic just around the corner from No. 2 Sportsground and ex-player Nick Hewitt now providing game day sports physio coverage to the senior men’s rugby squads, Wanderers will be well cared for by our team.

Our agreement with the Wanderers doesn’t stop with the seniors. Prior to and throughout the season, Nick will keep in touch with players and coaches from the junior, academy, and women’s squads, as well as the growing number of netballers seen in the Two Blues colours.

Cooks Hill Football Club

Cooks Hill Football Club - Sponsored sport club

Chris Morton says he’s retiring from playing for the mighty black and white after 12 seasons (“too old, too slow”), but the enduring relationship between Ethos Health and the Cookers continues. As well as having a huge number of men’s and women’s senior teams across all levels of competition, Cooks Hill is one of the biggest junior clubs in Newcastle – drawing players from Newcastle, Cooks Hill, The Junction, Hamilton, Bar Beach, Merewether, and more.

This year, physio Dan Lovegrove returns to look after the HIT Northern League One squads on game days, but all players regardless of age or grade can access the same great sports physio service and special offers from Ethos Health throughout the season.

Charlestown Netball Association

Charlestown Netball Association - Sponsored sport club

Ethos Health have worked alongside Charlestown Netball Association for several years now, with our Lake Macquarie physio clinic just down the hill from the courts. Once more, we will have special offers on ankle braces for Charlestown players to prevent ankle sprains (along with ACL tears – the scourge of netball players everywhere), and preferred partner rates on consultations.

Hamilton Hawks Rugby Club

Hamilton Hawks Rugby Club - Sponsored sport club

When Mark Williams started Physio at Work over 20 years ago, he was playing for the Hamilton Hawks just around the corner from our Newcastle physio clinic at Passmore Oval, Wickham. Since that time, we’ve provided many seasons of game day and sports physio coverage to the Hawks and are delighted to be back on deck with them this season after a few years apart.

Imogen Young will take the reigns as club physiotherapist this year, bringing her extensive rugby and private practice physiotherapy experience to Hamilton’s teams across the men’s, women’s, and junior squads.
