Bounce of the Ball is back for 2022!


Don't miss the goodbye party to the hottest football event on the AFL calendar...

Footy is back and we are excited the Bounce of the Ball is back in 2022! But hold on to your footy socks, it is going to be the last ever Bounce of the Ball. You don’t want to miss this one!

Due to COVID-19, we haven't been able to hold a Bounce of the Ball since 2019... so join us at the home of football (the MCG) for what is sure to be a big celebration and memorable farewell. 

Come along as we pre-empt the first bounce with our special guest panel of three football stars. Bring along your clients, colleagues and friends, and make the most of the networking opportunities while rubbing shoulders with legends of the game.

Panel Guest
Matthew "Richo" Richardson 

Since his retirement from AFL, Richo has made a career as a radio and TV footy commentator. His ‘never give up’ attitude makes him one of the all Australian greats of the game and just right as an ambassador for Windermere.

A true gentleman who is very passionate about the development of young players, Matthew is known for his ability to engage, entertain and inspire those around him. 

Panel Guest
Ben Brown 


2021 Premiership player, Ben was recruited by North Melbourne in 2014. Ben had a breakout year in 2017, kicking a huge 63 goals and representing Australia in the International Rules Series against Ireland. In 2019 Brown became just the third North Melbourne player to kick 60+ goals in three consecutive seasons.

Brown was traded to Melbourne at the end of the 2020 season and brought his goal kicking prowess when it mattered most, playing an integral part in the finals series and eventual Premiership in 2021.

A strong advocate for community affairs, he is a passionate advocate for gender equality and the prevention of violence against women.

Panel Guest
Meg McDonald


Tough and versatile on the field, Captain of Geelong's AFLW side Meg McDonald is passionate about advancing the women's game. A talented athlete growing up, McDonald only picked up AFL in 2016 and signed for the Western Bulldogs ahead of the inaugural season of AFLW in 2017.

Recognised as a smart defender, McDonald signed for Geelong ahead of the 2019 season and turned herself into the best defender in the competition. Selected in the All-Australian side and taking out the Geelong Best and Fairest in 2019, McDonald was elevated to the Leadership Group ahead of the 2020 season, and announced as Captain in 2021.
