Clapham Cubs are the first Auskick and Junior Australian Football Club in London. They are based in Clapham, South West London.
The Clapham Cubs were started back in early 2016 with the realisation that there was no real opportunities for kids and juniors to play Australian football in London. The Cubs will give the chance for the large amount of Australian Nationals in London to allow their kids to play Australia’s favourite game whilst introducing the sport to the vast number of nationalities that reside in London.
The founders of the Clapham Cubs are Lauren Spark and Lisa Wilson. Lauren and Lisa met when playing for the Wimbledon Hawks Ladies Team. They soon realised they shared a passion for Australian Football and both had the ambition to grow the sport within London and Internationally. In November 2016, Lauren moved back to Australia after being drafted to play for the Western Bulldogs in the inaugural AFLW League.
In late 2017, Lisa moved to Hamburg, Germany. Thankfully, one of our fantastic parents, Scott Mellis agreed to step in as Head Coach with the support from our regular assistant coaches and Lisa will continue to manage the admin side of the club.
