About the Tennis Club

Victoria Lawn Tennis Club, in Street, Somerset, welcomes players of all ages and abilities.

We have two new Astro Turf Courts and two hard courts which have been recently painted and refreshed. There are floodlights on all four courts, allowing for year round play. We have good court availability, with free play,  no booking required, at all times except club sessions.

As well as our own Tennis Pavilion next to the courts, with kitchen and toilets, we enjoy all the facilities of the Victoria Social Club, with spacious changing rooms and showers, a well -stocked bar, two lounge areas, pool table, skittle alley and function hall. 

The club is friendly and inclusive with plenty of opportunity to socialise. Social events include club tournaments, quiz nights and a Christmas get together. Members are able to opt in for Wimbledon tickets via the Lawn Tennis Association, with an annual draw for club members. 

As well as social and club tennis we compete in county summer and winter leagues with great success, running Men’s teams (A, B, C and D), Women’s Teams (A and B), Mixed doubles and Vet’s teams.

We are lucky to have two outstanding professional coach, John Cooksley and Ines Beeson, who are available throughout the year for individual and group coaching for both juniors and seniors.
