New Member Offer

New Member Offer

New to the club? Interested in coaching and becoming a member. Why not try 3 months membership for £30 (£10 for juniors). If interested please get in touch with MTG tennis to discuss coaching options, then contact portisheadtennis@gmail.com once you have had your first session to take up the 3 month membership.  


PAY and PLAY Courts

You can now book a court as a non-member, at certain times. To do this, go to the Booking section, look for courts 4 and 5, and click on a time slot with a price. If a court is already booked, it is marked with a padlock symbol.

Pay and play bookings are £4 per half hour during the day, and £5 per half hour in the evening when the floodlights come on.

When you book, you receive a one-off code number for access via the new electronic gate which is at the bottom of the steps down from Esplanade Road. Lights come on automatically - so please remember to cancel your booking (which triggers a refund and saves the lights) if you are not planning to use your booking.

At PLTC we want to promote tennis. We have put a huge amount of effort into making these new Pay and Play courts happen, and we hope they will prove a popular new facility for the people of Portishead. 

About the Club

Welcome To PLTC

Portishead Lawn Tennis Club, founded in 1924, is a thriving club with five all weather floodlit courts located at Portishead Lake Grounds.  We currently have over 300 members including a very strong junior section. The club is not for profit and run by a team of volunteers.

2 of our 5 courts have been built recently with the assistance of North Somerset Council, The LTA and Sport England. You need to be a member for general play at the club, but these new courts are Pay and Play for the people of Portishead - available to book online via this site without being a club member (see Booking). 

The club is here to promote tennis for all in Portishead and the surrounding area. We welcome new members all year round, and  non-members are welcome to some of our pay and play training courses. We are also keen to work with local community groups to promote tennis.

Throughout the year we offer:

  • Regular club social sessions 
  • Juniors and Adult training and fun improvers sessions
  • For experienced players, we have regular play and teams entered in both the Avon Winter and Summer Leagues 
  • A thriving junior section with teams competing in local leagues
  • A variety of tournaments and events throughout the year for full members.
  • Regular social events

We have qualified coaches, Mike Greedy, and James McCall, who run one to one and group coaching for both junior and adult players throughout the year. Group coaching is available to members and non-members and can be booked at clubspark.lta.org.uk/mtgtennis.

For any general enquiries, please contact us on portisheadtennis@gmail.com
