About us

Somerton Tennis Club started life in the late 1940’s and has been housed in several locations throughout Somerton. It has been in its current home at Gassons Lane since 1972. The club is based on a simple formula: To provide a well managed and kept tennis facility for its members and the people of Somerton. The club has progressed over the years and has evolved from humble beginnings to its present stature.

The club is affiliated to the LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) the governing body for tennis in this country. To that end we try to keep to the principle they set out: 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 another member or two is entirely up to you.

The club runs two open club sessions on Wednesday evening from about 18:30 to 22:00 (although most members have retired to the bar by 21:30) and again on Sunday mornings from 10:30 to 13:00ish. During the winter season when there are no evening matches the Men have a session on Mondays from about 18:00 and the Ladies on Thursdays.
