Senior Women's Grass

Senior Grass is a competition for all abilities and all ages over age of 18 years. All games are played at Downey Park at Windsor - the traditional home of women's hockey in Brisbane - on Saturday afternoons, following on from the Junior Grass Competition in the mornings. For many years (with exception of 2020) South West United (SWU) has fielded three teams in 3 (out of 4-5) divisions.

Grass hockey, though continuing to be very competitive, has a focus on participation & inclusion. It is a great a great way to meet new people, get fit or learn a new sport in a fun and encouraging environment.

Bring your friends & family . We have many generations of women who have played together in our teams - mothers, daughters, granddaughters, sisters, aunts, sisters-in-law.

Players 13 years of age (as at the 1st January) and above are eligible to play in the senior competition so we also welcome any juniors interested in playing both Senior & Junior competitions.

Come and make SWU your hockey family!
