For The" Love" of Tennis

Since 1922, the Liverpool Tennis Club has been serving its community at the corner of Park Street and Church Street in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.

Tennis originated from a 12th century French game called paume (meaning palm); it was a court game where the ball was struck with the hand. Paume evolved into jeu de paume and rackets were used. The game spread and evolved in Europe. In 1873, Major Walter Wingfield invented a game called Sphairistikè (Greek for "playing ball) from which modern outdoor tennis evolved.
The rules of tennis have not changed much since the 1890s. Two exceptions are that from 1908 to 1961 the server had to keep one foot on the ground at all times, and the adoption of the tie-break in the 1970s.

Liverpool's Tennis Club calender of activities are designed to suit the beginner or the more advanced with lessons available. The Tennis Club also hosts events for various levels of experience and abilities. The current memberships is about 60 members. New comers are welcome to stop in for a day of practice and leave your nominal fee in the honour box at the gate. All for the love of the game.
