Greville Smyth Tennis Club

League tennis match in progress

League Tennis

Any successful club should have a thriving competitive scene and Greville Smyth is no different. We enter teams in the inter-club Avon LTA leagues and we're always on the lookout for new players.

So, if you feel that you'd like to take your game beyond a social knock then there will be plenty of opportunity to do so. That's not to say that playing for the team won't be fun - we want to win but we also want people to enjoy their tennis and the more people who show an interest the more teams we can enter and the more opportunity there will be for everyone to get a chance to represent the club.

There is match practice every Friday night from 6pm apart from when there are Summer League matches scheduled (May until mid-July). Feel free to come along to these sessions or, if there is a match on, come along and cheer on the team - any support would be greatly appreciated.

Want to play League tennis?

Any Members of the Greville Smyth club are eligible to play in the Avon league for our club team. There are a range of doubles leagues: mens, womens and mixed in the county, and we put forward teams dependent on the amount of interest from club members.

In 2019, we have entered one summer men's team and two mixed teams (late summer and winter). Members who would like to join a team should talk to the team captains, Tom and Lionel, at one of the club social sessions or at Friday night team practice. Either email the club website to express an interest or speak to someone at a social session, where most people there will be able to point you in the direction of Tom or Lionel.
