About Taunton Tennis Club
Taunton Tennis Club and Taunton Tennis Centre: what's the difference?
We, the club, work closely with the leisure centre management company, GLL (Better Leisure), which is a social enterprise and runs Taunton Tennis Centre. Together, we try to offer all the playing opportunities you would expect from a local club at a competitive price.
So, just to be clear:
The club then and now
Club histories are generally of most interest to their own members, but here it is quickly anyway...
The club has existed in one form or another for over a hundred years. It was originally established in 1911 as Woodstock Tennis Club in Woodstock Road, just off Staplegrove Road. In 1993 it moved to Blackbrook and became Taunton Tennis Club, which had four outdoor courts. Finally, in 2006 the club’s members agreed to merge with Tone Leisure, the leisure centre management company at that time, in order to bring all 12 courts on the site under a single management structure and facilitate access to the indoor courts.
