Personal Requests

Due to the large number of requests received by the WACA, we do not accept personal items to be signed by players, coaches or staff. We encourage people to attend open training sessions or match days, where players will be more than happy to sign items at the completion of the session. Public training times and locations can be provided by calling our reception during business hours on 08 9265 7222.
