Mersey Bowmen Lawn Tennis Club

Older even than the All England Lawn Tennis Club at Wimbledon, Mersey Bowmen Lawn Tennis Club is the second oldest tennis club in the world. Founded as an archery club in 1781, the Bowmen occupied sites around Liverpool, including Cazneau Street and Lodge Lane, before moving to the newly-created Sefton Park in 1872.

 

Some of Liverpool’s finest players have played their tennis at Mersey Bowmen over the years. A memorial in the clubhouse recognises members who fought in both world wars, while the club has played a prominent part in the city’s tennis community since its inception.

Today, the club is proud to have a dynamic, multi-ethnic, diverse and friendly group of members. Mersey Bowmen offers a flexible range of coaching and social tennis sessions, tennis teams and so much more!

 

Social Play

There’s social tennis all year round. In the summer there’s three weekly social tennis session. During the winter club play continues with 2 social sessions.

 

Coaching

Mersey Bowmen has a dedicated club tennis coach, providing innovative, fun and rewarding sessions for adults and juniors, members and non-members in both one-to-one and group environments. All members are entitled to six weeks’ free group coaching sessions over the summer months.

 

Competitive Tennis

There’s also a number of teams in local leagues. In the Liverpool summer league, three mens and three ladies teams are active. There are also two Wirral winter league tennis teams. Both the men’s and ladies’ teams also play in the Lancashire Cup competitions, the Roscoe and Ransome trophies for men, and the Liebert Rose Bowl and Ralph Bint Trophy for women. And as a result if you’re looking for more match play, Mersey Bowmen offers a range for all standards.
