Welcome to Formby Lawn Tennis Club

Competitive and Social Tennis for all

Welcome to a tennis community that believes in the power of the game to bring people together. At Formby Lawn Tennis Club, we champion both competitive and social tennis, creating a vibrant, welcoming space for all members to enjoy the sport and connect with like-minded enthusiasts.


Our club is steeped in tradition and has evolved over the years, adapting to the changing needs of our community. While our formal records date back to 1934, we know that the spirit of tennis was alive in Formby even in the late 19th century when we started with just grass courts.

Emerging from the ashes of war, we rejuvenated our club by adding 3 hard courts. Since then, we've been on an exciting journey of growth and improvement. Now, we're proud to offer you six state-of-the-art, floodlit courts that promise an exceptional tennis experience all year round.

We have teams in the Southport and district league and the Liverpool mens and ladies leagues and matches are played on 4 courts on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights through the season.

Club House

At the heart of our club is the Clubhouse, your home away from home. It's a place where you can unwind after a game, share a laugh with fellow members, and make lifelong friendships. Our clubhouse is equipped with a modern kitchen, a cozy bar, and refreshing shower facilities. It's more than just a building; it's a space that encapsulates the camaraderie and community spirit of Formby Lawn Tennis Club.
