About GDTA

The Gawler & District Tennis Association incorporates teams from Gawler and surrounding towns. In the 2016–2017 Summer season the GDTA senior teams are again joined with the Barossa & Light Tennis Association for a continued stronger, more competitive senior Summer Saturday competition. All matches are played on hardcourt surfaces and, with the nine new light towers, competitions are available year round, night and day. The Association caters for both Junior and Senior players, with our two traditional annual tournaments plus some additional Tennis SA matches and tournaments to be included.
