The timeline of City United/Kedron Wavell Services Club

1977 KW CityUnited2 s

The City United Hockey Club was formed on 12th November 1975 from the Y.M.C.A. Hockey Club as a Men and Boys Club at Victoria Park Herston. The Club was formed as enthusiastic members of the Y.M.C.A. club felt they needed a new club to provide a separate identity for its members. There are still a few members of the Kedron Wavell Services Hockey Club who were originally members of the original Y.M.C.A. Hockey Club.

Unlike many other hockey clubs the City United Hockey Club was an united club from its inception with the Junior Boys, Senior Men, Junior Girls and Senior ladies with sub-committees administrating the four different sections under one administration.

We changed our name to Kedron Wavell Services Hockey Club Inc. The City United Hockey Club Inc. was approached by the Kedron Wavell Services Club previously to this date to run under the Services Club because City United held the lease on Burringbar Park which was up for renewal.

The Services Club felt they could assist the City United Hockey Club Inc. to carry out improvements to the park and the Lessor (Brisbane City Council) would be more favourable to this action. Discussions then followed and City United finally agreed to the offer and reformed as the Kedron Wavell Services Hockey Club Inc.
