The Lija tennis court was constructed in the early 1990’s when the Lija football ground was converted into a multiuse area that incorporated a downsized football area, a bocci pitch, swings and children’s play area as well as space allocated for the tennis court.

The first committee was formed in 1993, with Dr Thomas Azzopardi serving as President of the Club. Since that time, the membership increased steadily with currently over a hundred paid up members forming part of the club. The club is run by a committee made up of voluntary members whose aim is to keep the club fully operated and to ensure adequate maintenance of the tennis court itself, the organisation and coordination of a number of tournaments throughout the year, the running of coaching clinics to further promote the development of youths as well as holding a number of social events spread out over the year.

The club’s affairs are run from the clubhouse quarters, the legal title of which was devolved to the Lija tennis Club in 1999. The clubhouse underwent extensive refurbishment in 2010 amongst being the addition of several facilities and amenities to the club house.
