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 2nd June - Charity Doubles Competition
 
        
 
 
This year's supported charity was the Cleft Lip And Palate Association (CLAPA) and we were able to raise £86 for them, so well done all.
 
Twelve hardy souls braved the damp conditions to complete three matches each (with different partners) in a race to twenty-one format. The top two point scoring ladies and men were then paired to play the final. The winners were Jayne and John who defeated new member Michelle and Pete to take the trophies.
 
Rain interrupted play after the first games and we were given an interesting presentation by Sue, whose granddaughter is being helped by CLAPA. We were all engrossed and I am sure that we all agree that it is a very worthwhile charity to support.
 
Finally, thanks to Richard and Karen for running the event and supplying the cream teas.

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.
