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.

Christmas Auction - Saturday 8th December
 
The Christmas Auction took place on Saturday with a new host, Richard (complete with lit up bow tie), and a full house of keen bidders. Early problems with the chicken timer were soon causing barracking and great mirth but the bidding continued unabated. A break at halfway for the splendid buffet provided by Karen saw the chicken retired and a long-awaited debut for the egg in its place. Linda was the most successful on the night needing several plastic bags to haul away the goodies. 
 
    
 
Early instruction on chicken handling by the master proved insufficient to prevent its substitution later on. Bidding was lively throughout and there is no doubt that everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining evening.
 
Many thanks to Richard and Karen and to all those who attended.
 
Don't forget Boxing Day tennis.

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.
