About Knowle Lawn Tennis Club

Knowle Lawn Tennis Club was established in 1893 and is situated in sunny South Bristol (see map).

We have four hard courts (all of them are floodlit) and a club-house with changing facilities and a well stocked bar.

If you can play the game and are looking for a new club, or if you are a complete novice in search of coaching, the folks of Knowle Lawn Tennis club look forward to welcoming you in to their vibrant community.

For information on joining and for all other enquiries, please contact our Membership Secretary by email

Avon League Tennis Teams

As one of the larger tennis clubs in Bristol we have a fair number of mixed, women’s, men’s, and veteran tennis teams in the Avon league, so if you are looking for fun competitive tennis we should be able to accommodate you. For more details on out tennis teams and the divisions they play in check out our league page.


We employ a fully qualified coach, Matthew Thompson, to run our junior and adult coaching programme. Please see our coaching page for more details.



In addition to our league tennis, we run lots of fun tournaments to join in with throughout the year. Please see our tournaments page for dates, times and further details.

We also hold an annual presentation evening in November of each year, where the tournament winners are awarded the trophies.

Club Play

All full senior members, junior members (with full playing rights) and adult improvers (who are ready to progress to the next stage) are welcome to attend our weekly club play sessions.

These are free of charge sessions and we use a name board system to ensure everyone gets a fair chance to play.
