Cleeve Lawn Tennis Club


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.


Saturday 13th May - Goblin Combe Trophy
Cleeve regained the Goblin Combe Trophy by the narrowest of margins from local rivals Wrington. 
The format of this event is four matches consisting of a men's doubles, a ladies' doubles and two mixed doubles rubbers with two matches played at Cleeve and two at Wrington. Rubbers are simply the first to nine games with a tie-break at eight all. The winner is the club with most aggregate points.
Cleeve held a two game lead with one game still in progress. This went to a tie-break and although Wrington won the rubber it left Cleeve the victors by a single game.
The presentation and very nice buffet was hosted by Wrington this year and here is Richard accepting the trophy from Claire.

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.
