St. Columbs Premiership League (SPL) is run by St. Columbs Anglican Church Hawthorn. We started in 2010 at a time when the press in India was reporting on violence against Indian tertiary students in Melbourne. After a few big workings bees and some demolition work on our large church hall, we ran a match on a Summer’s evening with seven blokes from St. Columbs playing  – we had the doors open to let in the air so passers by saw what was happening. By the end of that evening there were around twenty people playing. Students had just invited themselves in.

A typical evening at the SPL Chapel...
