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

Elms welcomes members and non-members to book courts and tennis coaching!

Our grass courts have been open for play since the beginning of May, and our 2 new weekly club mix-in sessions have already become popular.  Members' mix-in sessions now take place on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings, Saturday afternoons (tea and cakes also on offer!) and Sunday afternoons too.  We have 3 teams playing matches playing in the local league, coaching takes place on Thursdays, and active WhatsApp groups to make it easy for members to organise and join other tennis games throughout the week.

Our Head Coach, Julie Williams, takes private lessons throughout the day on Thursdays, and she runs group sessions in the evenings: Juniors, Cardio tennis, Adult Returners, Adult Team Players.  All Julie's lessons are open to members and non-members alike, although full adult members of Elms are eligible for a subsidy.  Please see our Coaching page for more information.

We also organise various social tournaments and events throughout the summer season.  Please see our latest Newsletter and 'Fact Sheet' on the News page, to find out more information.

Our courts can be booked by members and non-members alike (non-members pay an hourly fee) - this is a vibrant, happy, friendly club with lots going on!

We're always happy to welcome prospective members at any time, so don't worry if you didn't make it to our Open Day - just let us know if you'd like to come and try out our courts or to discuss memberhsip options: 


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..
