Lisvane Tennis Club was founded in 1985 originally playing at Heath Park. The current site just to the north of Lisvane and Thornhill Station was bought freehold from Wales Gas in 1986 . The site which was once occupied by railway sidings to the south of the former Cefn On Station was cleared and the existing three courts were built in 1988.  The original clubhouse was a Portcabin situated in the same position as the current clubhouse.

In 2003 the stand alone Lisvane Tennis Club merged with Cardiff Athletic Club (founded in 1923 following the loss of their existing tennis section after their home at Sophia Gardens was redeveloped as part of the Glamorgan County Cricket ground redevelopment.  

Since amalgamation, the ground has benefited from a number of improvements, the most significant of which was the building of a new clubhouse (comprises changing rooms, disabled toilet, store room, kitchen, large clubroom and an outside disabled toilet and a large balcony overlooking three courts), opened by the Cardiff Athletic Club President, Bleddyn Williams in April 2004. In addition, the existing three courts were progressively upgraded to full LTA requirements in terms of lighting, surface and marking and as a result the Tennis Section is able to host home matches in the various leagues in which it competes throughout the year.

In September 2016 two additional floodlit courts with disabled access were opened with the assistance of a Lawn Tennis Association grant and loan.

In December 2018 the club was able to relay its original courts  1,2 and 3 with artificial clay courts - the work funded by Cardiff Athletic Club.
