About Us


The Adelaide University Lawm Tennis Club (AULTC) is looking for a group of people to manage the club long term. Roles that need to be filled include President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Social Coordinator and Competition Manager.

If you are interested in taking up a management role please email for more information.


The AULTC is one of the founding clubs of Adelaide University Sport and the men were first hitting the tennis balls over the net in 1885. Women started in 1912 and the two clubs combined in 1970.

Today the club is involved in social and competition tennis on natural grass and hard court. There is a strong social element to the club, both with social tennis and with the competition teams. And the club holds end of summer & winter season dinners for both social and competition players.

The club is open to all standard levels of players but those playing competition must be of a good competition standard, who are able to serve and rally consistently. We found the standard very tough, even in the lowest grade, thus players, who previously have successfully played competition tennis on grass, would have an advantage.

Please note – if you have not previously played on lawn before we strongly recommend you come along for a try, as players foreign to the surface will require adaption to the surface (we think you’ll like it).

Balls are supplied, but the expectation is players provide their own tennis attire and racquet.

If you are interested in joining the club please read the following information below and contact the club at


The AULTC has 8 lawn courts in total. The courts are regularly maintained to ensure they are in good condition. It is a different experience playing on grass, so if you're interested, grab your racket, your water and meet Hewett at the courts for a hit.

The lawn courts which we use in summer are located in Park 10, not far from the archery centre off War Memorial Drive and next to the Council nursery as shown here.

In winter, the grass courts are not playable and the club hires hard courts from Tennis SA which are located at the corner of War Memorial Drive and Montefiore Road.


Social Tennis is a great way to have a hit with others who love the sport but for whatever reason can't commit to competition tennis. Please note, there is no coaching available at these sessions. For more information about what is involved with Social Tennis click here.

To bring some fun competition to social tennis, the club is piloting Fast4 competition over the winter social period. Fro more information about what is involved click here.

To pay fees please click here or 'Join Now' at the top of the club page. Only paid members will be able to take part.

Weather policy:
If it looks like poor weather (rain, wind, storms) will affect the scheduled session, AU Sport will confirm with Hewett and Tennis SA that the session will be cancelled. All members will receive email or SMS notification and a post will be added to the club's Facebook page.


Depending on the interest received, the club can nominate men’s and women’s teams, where singles and doubles are played. Competition location takes place at metropolitan locations only on a ‘home and away’ basis.
