About SPTC

We are a lively and friendly tennis club situated on the South Petherton Recreation Ground in Lightgate Lane with 3 all-weather floodlit hard courts ensuring all year round play. There is no charge for the use of the floodlights which is a major benefit for members and also encourages play throughout the year.

As a club we cater for all standards of play and new members are always welcome. We currently have 5 teams playing in the local Yeovil & District Lawn Tennis League and hold a range of club members tournaments throughout the year.

The club also benefits from having qualified coaches to arrange our junior and adult coaching programme.

We are pursuing an exciting project to update the club's facilities. Find out more about our proposal and how you can help.

If you are interested in joining us visit our Membership Page. We look forward to seeing you on court!

South Petherton is a growing community and we are a very successful club with 166 members;

59 of them juniors.

We are keen to encourage children to join so they can benefit from all the sport has to offer. We have an award-winning Level 3 LTA accredited coach, who runs coaching sessions for over 60 children each week, members and non-members of the club.

Children pay just £10 for annual membership.

We are looking to add a disabled toilet to our facility and an accessible entrance, which is vital to enable the club to ecourage more juniors and enable wheelchair tennis.
