Stafford Roller Sports Club hockey players have represented Australia at several World Championships. In 1990 Australia ranked 3rd in the World Roller Hockey Championships "B" Group. The Championships were held in Macau and 22 nations participated. The 1991 World Roller Hockey Championships in Porto, Portugal, were not the success Australia had hoped for with the team ranking 12th in the "A" Group.

In 1992 roller hockey was a demonstration sport at the Barcelona Olympics and Australia sent a team that included several Stafford club members notably the captain Chris Raggett and coach Robert Carter (now a SRSC Life Member).

The images below capture that period of the club's history and show teams which played all over the globe from Spain to Columbia, New Zealand and Macau. To view the photos as a slideshow, click on an image.
