Australia’s most promising young female footballers, the Future Matildas, have taken up residency at West HQ’s ONE55 Health & Fitness with the support of West HQ’s Community Program.

A full-time program based in Sydney to give the most potentially talented players a high-quality football training environment outside of the W-League season, players in the Future Matildas program have been identified by national team staff as having the potential to be international players in the future.

Announcing the entertainment and lifestyle destinations support, West HQ Chief Executive, Richard Errington stated “West HQ believes in giving back to the community and through our Community Program we are delighted to be supporting the Future Matildas.

“West HQ has provided a ONE55 membership which provides access for the women in the squad along with coaching staff. We look forward to helping develop the future stars of Australian Football.”

With qualified instructors, weights and equipment, access to a heated 25-metre indoor pool, steam room, sauna, private fitness studios and cafe, ONE55 is a state-of-the-art Western Sydney gym.
