Adelaide Lutheran Sports Club (The Bulldogs) has existed in various forms since the late 1960’s when Adelaide Lutheran Football Club fielded a team in the United Churches League. After several home grounds, they settled in Adelaide’s south parklands in 1983.
In the nineties Adelaide Lutheran Cricket Club and Adelaide Lutheran Netball Club were also established. During this time our Clubrooms were renovated and extended several times albeit on tight budgets and the grounds and oval lighting were improved.
Over the years, countless players and supporters have committed a huge amount of time and energy to make the Club what it is today.
Our current operation includes Clubrooms with bar and kitchen and multiple playing fields, located immediately adjacent the United Churches Netball Courts on the corner of South Terrace and Goodwood Road. The Club includes over 400 playing members and 22 sports teams with a fantastic culture of tough but fair competition and a stable and friendly social environment for singles and families alike.

We are a Good Sports accredited club.
Sporting clubs such as ours play a significant role in the community and have a responsibility to our members and their families. We have chosen to join over 6,500 clubs across Australia taking part in the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program. Through Good Sports we are committed to managing alcohol responsibly and ensuring smoke free areas, which we believe will help us to provide a healthy, safe and family friendly environment.
Through Good Sports we aim to:
* Eliminate risky drinking in the club through the promotion of a responsible approach to the sale and consumption of alcohol in the club
* Protect juniors and other young people from the misuse of alcohol in and around the club
* Provide a responsible smoke-free club environment, through designated smoking areas
At Level 1, we are committed to:
* Not selling or consuming alcohol without an appropriate liquor license
* Training our bar staff in Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA)
*Responsibly managing smoke free areas in line with our requirements
