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 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 15th July - John Gordon Doubles Competition
This year's John Gordon competition was very well supported with 17 keen protagonists turning up on Sunday morning to vie for the coveted silver(ish) cup and the chance to polish it for a year.
Matches were played in the now familiar format of a race to 21 points, each player serving for four points before pairs changed ends. Each player had 3 matches with different partners, the pairings designed to achieve close results - the champion being decided on aggregate of points won.

Having won all three of her games, Justine was declared champion for the third time (equalling Ros's record) and received the cup from Richard. Ian dropped only one point and was runner-up.
Well done to all who turned out and better luck in the next competition, the Phyllis Luffman, in August.
Once again, thanks to Richard and Karen for running the event and supplying the strawberries and chocolate brownies.

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.
