Sunraysia District Women’s Hockey Association (SDWHA) was formed with 5 school-based teams playing on the Mildura High School ovals
The Indian Women visited Mildura and other regional locations in Australia, playing against local representative teams to promote women’s participation in hockey.
Some senior games were played at Mansell Reserve, although junior remained at Mildura High School Oval until the 1980’s
The SDWHA became an incorporated body
The SDWHA was moved to the Old Aerodrome Ovals
The SDWHA, in partnership with Mildura West Cricket Club, relocated and renovated the old building which had previously been used by the soccer association and developed shared facilities.
The SDWHA became the Sunraysia Hockey Association (SHA) to accommodate the increased number of boys playing and the introduction of a men’s competition.
Lights were installed on the grass hockey pitch
SHA moved to the new artificial turf facility and clubrooms at Old Aerodrome Ovals
