The First Lawn Tennis Club

Established in 1872, Leamington Lawn Tennis and Squash Club holds the title of First Lawn Tennis Club in the World. That’s right, it all started in Royal Leamington Spa – three years before Wimbledon opened it’s doors.

These days we also have a very active squash section, our own gym and fabulous new bar.


The tennis section of the club has been back on court now for a few weeks with the majority of the activities back underway, including the monthly ladders, coaching and club championships.

Squash (COVID-19 Update)

From Monday 14th September, you will be able to play squash within a designated bubble of six people. Click here to see how these new guidelines can help you get back into playing your favourite game again.

The Hidden Gem Bar

How to Join the Club

Please Close Tennis Court Gates in the Evening

Can everyone close the tennis court gates AFTER 8pm or if you think you are going to be the last players on the courts.

We have to keep the court gates open to minimise points of contact but it saves wear and tear on our volunteers if they don’t have to close them at night.
