- Sporting Organisation
The South Australian Women's Amateur Sports Council was established with financial and administrative assistance from the National Fitness Council to promote the interests of sportswomen in South Australia, and to help formulate "a common policy on planning and development for women's sport". One of its most important initiatives, in cooperation with the National Fitness Council of South Australia, was the establishment of the Women's Memorial Playing Fields on the corner of Shepherds Hill Road and Ayliffes Road, St. Marys.
