How to find us
Avon Vale Tennis & Croquet Club
Blackhall Lane, Avonwick
Avon Vale Tennis and Croquet Club (AVTCC) is a small, friendly club situated in the village of Avonwick in the heart of Devonshire’s beautiful South Hams, a few miles south of South Brent, a small town next to the main A38 road linking Exeter and Plymouth.
Our five grass courts and one croquet lawn are in play from April to September (depending on the weather), while our hard court is available all year.
Originally founded as an archery club in 1859, the club moved to its present site in 1870 and the first tennis tournament was held in 1879. We are older than Wimbledon and believe that we are the third oldest tennis club in the world still playing on its original courts (after the Edgbaston Archery and Lawn Tennis Society and the Bowdon Bowling and Lawn Tennis Club).
Today the club has a membership of around 100 adult and 40 junior members, and we have a thriving programme of tennis and social events and coaching. New tennis, croquet or social members are always welcome.
