In less than a month, the 2019/20 season begins. Please familiarise yourself with the programme, the match venues and the process of entering scores through Match Centre as soon as possible.


Welcome to the Metropolitan Lawn Tennis Association. Through our affiliated clubs across Adelaide, we cater for all standards of player. The Association runs competitions for singles and doubles for both men and women as well as doubles only for women.

Our season runs from October – April each year. Matches are played on Saturday afternoons across the Adelaide metropolitan area.

The 2019 -20 Metro Lawn Tennis Association season will begin very shortly, on Saturday, October the 19th. Team captains and club contacts must familiarise themselves with Tennis Australia’s Match Centre website for programme details and to enter scores. Team captains unable to use Match Centre to enter scores, must forward their scores to the MLTA Recording Secretary by the Tuesday, immediately proceeding their match. Match Rules and inclement weather details are available on this website. Please refer to it if you have questions, failing that, contact your club captain. 


The 2019-2020 Season will run from October 19th, 2019 to March 14th 2020 for the Minor Rounds, with the finals occurring on the 21st and 28th of March 6th, 2020. 

Don’t forget to enter your scores on the Tennis Australia Match Centre App or website and to send those match day photos to the Metro Lawn Tennis Association’s Facebook page, Instagram account or email address.

Also, remember to be SunSmart at all times, not just during the tennis season.
