Not to undermine the international argument (I don't think the raw numbers are all that important in this debate), but Cam the number of women's teams/players is probably more important than the number of clubs, and in South Australia has exploded in the last few years. So in the example of South Australia the teams in 2017 were:

Div 1 - Adelaide Uni, West Adelaide, Morphettville Park, Salisbury, Port Adelaide, Modbury

Div 2 - Angle Vale, Christies Beach, Mount Lofty, Greenacres, Mount Barker, Adelaide Uni, Morphettville Park, Ingle Farm

Div 3 - Flinders Uni, Gaza, North Pines, Port Adelaide, West Adelaide, Eastern Park, Angle Vale, Western Suburbs

Div 4 - Happy Valley, Adelaide Uni, Christies Beach, Morphettville Park, Ironbank Cherry Gardens, Mount Lofty, Nairne Bremer, Kangarilla

Div 5 - Strathalbyn, Salisbury, Mount Barker, Golden Grove, North Haven, Aldinga

I count (quickly) 30 teams. Amazing. I can remember when it was about 4 sides just maybe 10 years ago. And all or mostly 18-a-side plus a 10 team U18s and many many junior sides. And we know involvement in SA has only just boomed after lagging well behind most other states.
