Are You Double Vaxed??

Major sporting codes around the ACT have come together to encourage our community to get vaccinated, where possible.

The Ainslie Football Club strongly supports this initiative, working as one so we can do the things we love to do, and do them safely for ourselves, our friends, our families, and our community.

Representing the AFL community is Ainslie's Women's 1s coach/player Britt Tully. Thanks Britt.
