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.

 


 
Saturday 9th September -  Christmas Auction
 
Here's Pete describing the next lot up for grabs at this year's Christmas Auction. 

 
As usual bidding was enthusiastic and at times hectic but always good humoured. This year's big winners were Phil and Rachel who nearly swept the board in the first half of proceedings inevitably prompting loud groans after the third or fourth win. However, most bidders were successful at least once during the evening and if not, well, there was always the red wine.
 
Many thanks to Pete for running this enjoyable lead into Christmas.
 
Jumble Sale
 
The next great event is the South-West's best Jumble Sale on 3rd February.
Donations are welcome and can be collected in advance (01934 853446) or can be dropped off at the hall on the morning of the sale. Members may leave donated jumble in the clubhouse in the week or two before the sale.

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.
