Tennis for all the family

Tennis Membership at Exeter Golf and Country Club is as much about the lifestyle as it is about the tennis. 

Exeter Golf and Country Club combines great tennis courts (with two new clay courts open later this year), club and competitive tennis for all levels, some of the county’s top tennis coaches and a vibrant social scene for families and individuals, from beginners to advanced players. Whether you’re a competitive tennis player or just getting started, we have the tennis membership for you.

Tennis Membership includes unlimited use of the six tennis courts from 7am – 9pm, along with swimming in the heated indoor and outdoor pools with jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.

Competitive Tennis

Over the summer and winter season, Exeter Golf and Country Club has 20 teams competing in the Exeter and District and East Devon Tennis Leagues, with junior teams from 8U to 18U taking part in the National League in the summer season. The Nexus Junior Tour, set up in partnership with Devon Tennis, provides more opportunities for juniors in the county aged 11-16 and won the 2019 Devon Tennis Competition of the Year Award.

Social Tennis
