Established in the 1930’s the club has grown and improved its facilities, recently completing a major refurbishment of the clubhouse and courts. We have 6 all-weather courts, 3 of which are floodlit and a clubhouse which is the centre of social nights and events with a fully licenced bar.
The club has a solid member case of adult, students and juniors who play all year around socially or in one or more of the men’s, ladies and mixed teams which compete in the East Lancs League.

Burnley Tennis Club is delighted to announce we been awarded funding in line with one of the club’s major objectives through the Sportivate Fund. This funding has come after hard work behind the scenes by our Performance Coordinator, Donna Livesey.
Sportivate is a new nationwide campaign that forms part of the ‘Places, People, Play’ Olympic legacy programme developed by the Government and Sport England. Sportivate will provide teenagers and young adults aged 11-25 and who do not seek out sporting activities for themselves opportunities to participate in regular sporting activity.
Sportivate supports the Play strand of Places People Play and will directly contribute to the mass participation legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Lancashire Sport Partnership is accountable for the delivery of the Sportivate across Lancashire. Their major role will be to undertake a planning and implementation process that will lead to ‘joined up’ and integrated delivery of sport and physical activity for young people and adults aged between 11 and 25. A critical role for Lancashire Sport Partnership is to identify a diverse range of providers that can offer high quality and sustainable activities for young people and adults aged between 11 and 25. There will be an emphasis on ensuring coaches selected by providers offer high quality and compelling activities to young people.
Being awarded this funding shows Lancashire Sport Partnership supports the club’s commitment of establishing strong links with local schools and colleges and encouraging young adults to take up tennis.
