Tim Webber played most of his junior football with the Athelstone Football Club and Pulteney Grammar School. He also progressed through the Redlegs under-age sides and in 2007 played seven games for the Reserves, as well as winning the Norwood Under 19 best and fairest award. The following season he played 18 games for the Reserves, and in 2009 made his league debut for the club.

In 2010 he played his 50th game for the Reserves and was named best and fairest in that grade.

Having only played three senior games in 2009 and three again in 2010, Webber's consistency and perseverance was eventually rewarded in 2011 when he made 22 league appearances and ran third in the club's best and fairest award.

The tough, diminutive, inside midfielder was a regular A grader from then on and was a key performer in the Redlegs 2012, 2013 and 2014 premierships.

In 2012 he also took out the coveted Woods Medal, ran third in the best and fairest and was high in South Australia's best players in its win over Western Australia.

Continuing to play at a very high standard, Webber was also third in the 2014 best and fairest award.

Part of the leadership group in 2015/2016, Webber was runner-up in the 2015 best and fairest and was named best team man in the same year. He played his 100th game in 2016.

Increased work commitments and overall wear and tear on his body, combined to bring "Doc's" league playing career to an end.

In 2018 he was named Reserves assistant coach.

Webber then played in the Hills Football League for the Onkaparinga Valley FC (2019-2021).

A talented cricketer, he was a top order batsman for the East Torrens A grade team over many seasons.
