Founded in 1964
The club was formed in 1964 and played their games at the Ridley Grove Reserve Elizabeth fielding only junior teams. Eventually the club fielded a senior team in the newly formed Sunday Industrial League in 1965. The league was later to be known as teh SA Amateur Soccer League.
Para Hills first games in the amateur leage were played at Dauntsey Road Elizabeth North but when they transferred to the SASF League in 1966 they moved to the Salisbury United ground at Kelsey Road Salisbury.
The club again changed venues when on the 21st May 1966 they played their first league game at Nelson Road. This was a two tier reserve with the bottom tier called the Eldridge Ground in 1970 after one of the founders of the club.
It wasnt until 1978 that the club moved to its current ground "The Paddocks" at Bridge Road Para Hills. This ground was officially chose as an Olympics Training Venue for the 2000 Olympic games and had many of the top teams training at the ground during the tournament.
The founding members of the club were Robert Eldridge, John Eldridge, Chick Harris, John West, Andy Balter and Malcom Owen.
