A brief history of Walmer Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club

Before WLTC&C became a tennis club in 1883, it is believed that the land it now occupies was, as the name of the square eludes to, a place for archery.

In the 1960’s, the members at the time had the foresight and opportunity to purchase the land. This guaranteed the future for the following generations.

In the past 10 years, the club has invested heavily in the future of the club and continues to look forwards.
