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 two club play sessions per week, on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. For a small club we also provide a range of league play opportunities with sides entered mainly in the North Somerset leagues. 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 club 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.

Sunday 18th August - Phyllis Luffman Mixed Doubles Competition
 
   
 
 
Phyllis Luffman was Guest of Honour this year to witness play in the competition named after her.
 
She spent time talking to members and no doubt reminiscing about the early years of the club. Hopefully she was pleased with the way the club has progressed and is, of course, welcome to visit any time. (Thanks to Sally for locating her and enabling the visit).
 

 
The nine pairs that contested the tournament were split into three groups of three in the first round robin. The usual race to 21 point format was used and the winners from each group then played another round robin to determine the winning pair. Wendy and Richard won all of their matches and were declared champions with Jackie and Dave coming second and Justine and Dan third.
Wendy and Richard (pictured above) were presented the 'silver' salvers by Pete.
 
Thanks to Pete for running the event and thanks to all those who entered. The next competition is the Chairman's team v President's team on September 22nd.

League
 
This Summer the Ladies were promoted back to Division 1, the Men's A team were relegated back to Division 4 and the Men's B team stayed put. 
 
 
See the notice-board in the clubhouse for fixtures and the league tab on the left to see the tables and results.
 

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.
