About Us

History, Fun, and Friendship

South West United Hockey Club is currently the largest hockey club in the western suburbs of Brisbane. We cater to all standards of hockey players aged 5 to 75 in both grass and turf competitions. Our club was founded in the early 1970's, by a group of Norths men from the Ashgrove area who wanted to extend the game to the western suburbs of Brisbane. They also formed a girls' team from Toowong High School which became our first women's team. The club is based in the Graceville area of Brisbane but, attracts and welcomes players from all over Brisbane.

South West United decided to separate into 2 clubs and operate independently in the early 80s. Both clubs have always been based at Graceville Memorial Park. But in 2016 the decision was made that the two clubs should merge and reform into a single club. Both clubs felt this would allow the community to identify South West as a united identity, with the sole focus on promoting hockey as a sport.

The club caters strongly for both girls and boys sport in our area, drawing from the Western suburbs from Bellbowrie to Camira, Kenmore, Toowong and the Graceville/Sherwood areas. Many South West Players have represented our area in School hockey teams and Brisbane junior teams.

We currently have a membership of over 300 players that compete in Masters, Senior Turf, Senior Grass, Junior Turf, Junior Grass and U9 and U7 Rookey competitions. We pride ourselves on being a very welcoming and safe club and you will notice us for sure in our distinctive bright blue and orange uniforms and we're affectionately known as the Mighty Swooos.

The senior teams cover players from the enthusiastic new player, top grass players, turf and Masters players. South West has represented Queensland in the Masters' teams from the inception of this 35+ concept in 1982.

This club is truly a volunteer run organisation, with the local community gaining immensely from the hours of dedicated service by its volunteer administrators, coaches, managers and umpires.
