The tennis section are very proud of our relationship with both the local and wider sporting community and offer members, their family and guests the opportunity to enjoy our facilities 365 days a year. We have 3 floodlit astro courts and five grass courts
We also host the award winning Liverpool International Tennis Tournament. The LITT is the longest running and largest tennis exhibition in Europe and features both legends and stars of the future. Past tournaments have featured the likes of Novak Djokovic, John McEnroe, Greg Rusedski, Martina Navratilova and Martina Hingis.
The ITT features a junior coaching session that previously achieved a Guinness World Record when 683 local school children enjoyed a days programme of tennis activities.
The tennis section has a number of age and ability events included within our calendar ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy our sport.

Dementia Awareness Fundraiser
A big THANK YOU is extended to everyone who supported our recent Dementia Awareness Tennis A Thon fundraiser which raised an amazing £450.00!
Our mixed doubles competition was played on a fantastically sunny Saturday afternoon with a series of matches played in a league format. Our eventual winners Gemma Stringer and her ‘on court’ partner Martin Strauss played some amazing tennis, overcoming strong competition in the final against Lisa Woodward and Phil See. A great afternoon of socialising and exercising was enjoyed by all and we will be organising another similar event soon. Special thanks are also extended to Mr and Mrs Puddifer and our court caterer extraordinaire Julie Foster for providing a magnificent variety of refreshments. The gummy bears were particularly nice.

Tennis Awards Evening – Friday 10th September.
And the good times keep on coming……….
It has been a difficult year for everyone and despite the leagues not offering promotion our teams have been incredibly successful in what can only be described as ‘trying circumstances’. In order to celebrate our on and off court success we will be using our awards night to raise funds for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Tickets are priced at £10.00 and include top class entertainment and a buffet. They can be obtained either from team captains or by emailing [email protected]. All club members, their families and friends are welcome.
