Fancy yourself as the next Australian Ninja Warrior? 

Now you can test your limits on Fairfield’s first ninja obstacle course at Wetherill Park.

Ninja 101 at the Futsal Institute has been operating for two months and has 22 obstacles designed to challenge athletic ability and develop stamina and strength.

It combines a lot of agility and strength obstacles.

The course caters for all ages and skills levels and is home to Sydney’s only Ninja inflatable courses for kids.

One of the owners of the Futsal Institute – an indoor football centre – Matt Borg said the course was developed following the success of the television show Ninja Warrior.

”We have actually had a few people from the show come and test it and everyone loves it and they have found it challenging,” he said.

“It combines a lot of agility and strength obstacles. It’s good cross-training for kids as well and works on different muscle groups.”

The centre’s five-metre warped wall (almost a metre higher than the wall on Ninja Warrior) is thought to be the highest in Australia.

Borg said only five people have conquered it since it opened.
