Cleeve Lawn Tennis Club

   Home


Welcome to the online home of Cleeve Lawn Tennis Club

We pride ourselves on being a friendly and welcoming club to any player of any standard of any age.
Although we are a small club, we have excellent facilities. Our two courts are laid to carpet and we have powerful floodlights. Our pavilion is fully furnished with all the necessary facilities and being in the middle of the village's King George V Playing Field, means we have plenty of space and a beautiful outlook. With no immediate neighbours, we do not have any limits on the use of our floodlights, so play can continue into the long dark winter nights.

We regularly organise tournaments and have a couple of social sessions per week. For a small club we also provide a range of league play opportunities – though we would particularly like to increase the number of our lady players, to allow us to enter more teams. We play in both the summer and winter leagues – so competitive play is available all the year round.

We also organise a range of varied social events – Cycle rides, BBQs, quizzes, meals and week-ends away. So we offer something for everyone. You can join in as much or as little as you want!

For any new players or players feeling a bit rusty, we do have the services of a qualified LTA coach who offers both adult and junior coaching on a weekly basis.

We offer fair rates for players of all ages – and it covers everything. No extra charges for floodlights or balls.

We also encourage new potential members to join us for a few club sessions before deciding to join – so feel free to come along on a Wednesday night from 7.15 and give us a try.

 


 
Monday 28th August - Strawberry Line
 
Pete, Jen B, Karen, Martin, Justine and Jen L on bicycles and Ian and Jackie on foot made the annual pilgrimage to the Woodborough Inn in Winscombe via the Strawberry Line. The intrepid group were joined by Sally and Mike for lunch, timing their arrival perfectly. Many thanks to Justine for organizing the event and arranging for the lovely weather.
 

 
 
Sunday 20th August - John Gordon Cup
 
The last of this season's club tournaments took place on Sunday and the outcome was in doubt to the last match. Wendy sat in the clubhouse with three wins under her belt wondering if Justine (on court) would join her. That didn't happen but what those watching hadn't realised was that Hugo, who was one of three having to play four matches, was still in the hunt provided that the match discarded was the one he lost. Drawn out of the hat by Karen was just that match so we had a tie for first place between Wendy and Hugo. Countback on games conceded left Hugo the clear winner. Here are our champions receiving their awards from Richard.
 
   
 
Thanks are due to Richard and Karen for running the event and supplying the snacks.

View of the courts.

The surface is called "Matchplay II" and is a sand dressed, outdoor carpet. It was chosen mainly because it provided a consistent bounce of medium pace, was easy on players' joints and was playable in all weathers.
