THE AVENUE TENNIS CLUB
We are a friendly family-oriented tennis club located on the Somerset coast in Burnham-on-Sea. New members are always welcome and, being the largest club in the county with around 300 members, we have lots to offer everyone from beginners through to county players.
Friday nights is family night where members and non members are encouraged to come down to either the adult coaching or club doubles match play. Junior members enjoy free organised fun tennis sessions for up to school year 3 from 6:30pm till 7:30pm, school year 4 and upwards from 7:30pm to 8:30pm. School year 7+ members have organised match-play from 8:00pm. If you want any details about membership or other coaching courses which run throughout the week then please contact Head Coach, Vinny Duddy on 01278 782758.
Tennis is played all year round at The Avenue thanks to our having 8 floodlit courts. We invested over £40,000 in 2006 replacing 3 of the Astroturf court surfaces, refreshing the hard court surfaces and upgrading the floodlights.
If you wish to play league doubles, we enter 5 men’s and 4 ladies’ summer league teams and 2 mixed winter league teams. Floodlights are free for all members on social club play nights (Wednesday and Friday). The social side of the club is thriving and we have a fantastic modern clubhouse with disabled facilities and a large patio area for summer use. At the heart of the clubhouse is a well managed bar selling draught lager, beer and cider as well as wine, spirits, soft drinks and snacks. The bar, function hall and kitchen are available for hire to parties of up to 100 guests.
