Our outstanding facilities are conveniently located at the Sports Club, Gasson’s Lane, Somerton. The Club has two all-weather, floodlit courts, plus a junior mini-court and a new members clubhouse for 2021.
We welcome anyone into the club at any standard without the need to be “played in” or wear “regulation whites”; as we have done for many years. All we ask is that you respect the club rules, its members and general tennis etiquette.
The tennis you play in the club is entirely up to you. Whether you want to be considered for the club teams in the Yeovil and District league or just have a gentle knock with other members, or join-in on one of our social sessions.
We have an active programme of club sessions throughout the week, with dedicated men’s, women’s and mixed sessions. Balls are provided by the club for these sessions, along with floodlit courts when required.
If you are interested in attending one of these sessions, either as a non-member to try-us-out, or as a member for the first-time, please let our membership secretary know and we will arrange for someone to welcome you on your arrival and introduce you to those playing in the session.
Non-members can attend up to three club sessions to get a feel-for-the-club; don’t forget your tennis racquet!

Wednesday 9:00 to 11:00 & Thursday 19:00 – 21:00*
