Join Exeter Golf and Country Club, Rackets Membership to play tennis and enjoy use of the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, along with squash and racketball.

Tennis at Exeter Golf and Country Club offers social and competitive tennis for families, advanced and beginner tennis players.

Whether you’re a competitive tennis player or just getting started, we have the tennis club membership for you.

Our six outdoor floodlit tennis courts surrounded by the listed Victorian wall of the original garden have just been refurbished and are in pristine condition. Tennis members can enjoy informal tennis at our Club Nights and social tournaments, learn to play with our team of coaches or take part in competitive league tennis.

Perhaps finish off an early evening game with a Pimms on the terrace of the restaurant? You can’t get much more ‘English’ than that. If the winter months prove too wet to play outdoors, then pop inside and try your hand at squash or racketball, both are included in the Rackets membership, along with swimming in our indoor and outdoor pools.

The best place to start is our popular Thursday Club Night. Running from 6.00pm this coach-led social doubles session is open to players of all abilities and is a great way to get to know other members.

Competitive Tennis

We have men’s, ladies, mixed and junior tennis teams competing in local leagues. We are always looking for new players of all abilities to join the teams.

Over the summer and winter seasons we have over 20 teams competing in the Exeter and District and East Devon Tennis Leagues so there is plenty of opportunity for everyone who would like to participate in competitive league tennis. We also have junior teams from 8U to 18U taking part in the National League in the summer season.

We run regular competition for juniors at all levels. The Nexus Junior Tour, set up in partnership with Devon Tennis, provided more opportunities for juniors in the county aged 11-16 and won the 2019 Devon Tennis Competition of the Year Award.
