Ilminster Tennis and Bowling club membership information

Ilminster Bowling and Tennis Club is a private members club located in the heart of Ilminster. Full membership gives you access to tennis on our 3 floodlit hard courts, indoor and outdoor bowling, table tennis, full size snooker table, the bar and restaurant facilities. Social events take place in the bar area, there is a weekly quiz and other fun events throughout the year.

There are tennis club sessions every Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10am to 12 noon, Thursday evenings from 6.00pm (but not always during May to July as league tennis) and Saturday afternoons from 1.00pm.

Adult group coaching sessions are organised and private junior and adult lessons are available. 

Junior coaching is on Monday evenings 4pm to 5pm and 5pm to 6pm and Saturday mornings from 9am to 10am, 10am to 11am and 11am to 12 noon.

During the autumn and winter months evening play is still possible as the courts are floodlit (tokens for these may be purchased from the bar - each token costs £2.00 lasting 30 minutes).

To help you familiarise yourself with the Club and its facilities we would be delighted to arrange for a member of the Committee to show you around and also to introduce you to other members of the Club  (click here to contact us).

Ilminster tennis club enters 8 teams in the local Yeovil and District League which runs from May to July. We enter 3 ladies, 2 mixed and 3 mens teams so there is always scope for everyone to be involved in competitive tennis around the area at your level of play.

Members are not required to pre-book tennis courts. However, it is suggested that members refer to the league match 'home' fixtures lists in the tennis pavilion or online prior to arranging a tennis game during the months of May, June, July and the 1st week of August.

Guests may be introduced by a Member up to a maximum of 3 times in a year after which time they must apply for membership before being further admitted.

The LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) requires Club members to have a BTM (British Tennis Member) number. The number is issued by the LTA and is free of charge. The benefits fo signing up include:

  • the number of registered 'Opted In' players determines the number of Wimbledon tickets that will be allocated to Ilminster by the LTA. 'Opting In', together with your BTM number, gives you access to Ilminster Tennis Club's Wimbledon ticket ballot. Once you have registered for your BTM membership, the Opting In icon is shown when you first log onto the LTA website.

  • you are eligible to play in club league matches as each player is required by the LTA to have a BTM number
