The DOOLEYS Metro League is one of the top netball competitions in New South Wales, offering week in, week out competition for the state’s most talented metro-based netballers, coaches, umpires and administrators.

Contested on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights at Netball Central in Sydney Olympic Park on Wangal country, over 60 teams from across the Sydney Metro region battle it out for honours in six divisions. 

Proudly supported by the DOOLEYS Catholic Club in Lidcombe for more than a decade, a host of NSW talent has come through Metro League, honing their skills in the competition before going on to higher honours in the Netball NSW Premier League, and subsequently Suncorp Super Netball via the NSW Swifts and GIANTS Netball.
