Portishead Lawn Tennis Club


New Court Build Postponed

We are due to build 2 new courts for the club. This has been postponed until the start of March 2021 due to the state of the ground and the COVID emergency. We hope we will be able to provide this wonderful new facility to current and new tennis players in Portishead early next year.

About the Club

Welcome To PLTC

Portishead Lawn Tennis Club, founded in 1924, is a thriving club with three all weather floodlit courts located at Portishead Lake Grounds.  We currently have over 300 members including a strong junior section. We are building 2 new courts in March 2021 - with the assistance of North Somerset Council, The LTA and Sport England.

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.

The club is also keen to work with local community groups to promote tennis, and in 2020 we hope to build two new courts which will include an online pay-and-play option. For more information please email message [email protected]


Throughout the year we offer:

  • Regular club nights each week
  • 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 (we currently have a Mens Team in Avon Division 1)
  • A thriving junior section with teams competing in local leagues
  • A variety of tournaments and events throughout the year
  • 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.
