Welcome to Elms Lawn Tennis Club - Somerset Club of the Year 2021

Our grass courts will re-open in early May, with an Open Day shortly afterwards...

Open Day – 11th May 2024

The club are hosting an open afternoon on 11th May from 2-5pm. Anyone who is interested in coming along to play some tennis on our lovely grass courts is very welcome. During the afternoon you will be invited to play some informal tennis doubles with our members and join us for some tea and cake.  You do not need to stay for the whole session - just drop in when it is convenient. We are always keen on new members joining the club, and there will be committee members available during the session to discuss membership options with you.

We are busy getting ready for the re-opening of our 4 fabulous grass courts in the first week-or-so of May.  Until then, our members continue to play on the floodlit outdoor courts at Blackbrook on Saturday afternoons 1pm-4pm, and onThursday evenings from 7pm .  

Elms Lawn Tennis Club

Elms Lawn Tennis Club is a thriving and friendly tennis club, with four grass courts set in an idllyic location close to the centre of Taunton.  We play on our own grass courts in the summer months, May to September, and we continue with club mix-in sessions throughout the winter on local hard tennis courts.

During the summer months, you can start playing straight away by using 'Pay & Play' - book and pay for one of our courts by the hour - or you can choose from a range of membership options one that best suits your circumstances.   If you are looking to improve, or are just starting off, you may well want to join one of our coaching sessions.

We are committed promoting safeguarding at our club at all times and to deliver a positive tennis experience for all.  If you have a concern please report your concern to the LTA by simply clicking here..
