SENIOR TEAM INFORMATION

Please find as follows important information pertaining to Olympic senior teams for 2022:


​​​​​​​Wellington Olympic is fielding six senior teams this season:

• Central League (National League)

• Capital Premier (Reserves)

• Capital 1

• Wellington Division 1 ("Cosmos")

• Masters 2 ("TFTs")

. Wellington Women's Division 3


This year the TFT's celebrate their 30th year with Olympic, an association we are all extremely proud of and humbled by.  The TFTs were affectionately known as "The Doctors Team" when they first joined the Club with brothers Chris and Michael Leach as the team's drivers.  In their 30th anniversary, Michael is again at the helm with Chris coming out of retirement to make this season an auspicious one for them, the TFTs and Olympic.  CONGRATULATIONS TFTs!!


After a silent five years, Wellington Olympic are excited that we have again introduced our Women's team back on the field.  A mixture of experience is not going to stop these players giving it their all this season and we're looking forward to some real excitement and fun!  Welcome back Wellington Olympic Women's team!!
