Vittoriosa Lawn Tennis Club

In June 1974 a group of civic-minded tennis enthusiasts got together and decided to form the Vittoriosa Lawn Tennis Club. The idea was the brainchild of two English brothers, Frank and Stephen Ash who at the time resided in Vittoriosa, hence the name of the Club.

The seriousness of this young Club was soon recognised. The use of the then Naval courts at Corradino was soon accorded to the VLTC. When eventually all British Forces facilities reverted to the Malta Government in 1979, these samecourts were put at the disposal of the Vittoriosa Lawn Tennis Club. Five years later, a clubhouse was built while the courts were refurbished regularly.

Recently the VLTC underwent extensive works that were to change considerably the complex as we had known it since the days of the British Forces. The four concrete surfaced courts which stood at different levels were dug and levelled to one plane. They were resurfaced with hot asphalt and each given access through an independent entrance. The floodlighting system was totally replaced to give stronger and better light diffusion on the courts. A new chain-fencing system was installed all around the courts.

The Vittoriosa Lawn Tennis Club which is affiliated with the Malta Tennis Federation is one of the leading Tennis Clubs on the Island. It is recorded that since its foundation thirty years ago, the number of individuals who at any time were registered as club members has reached the 10,000 mark. The Club organises Tennis Tournaments all the year round and on many occasions hosts European tennis championships. The annual Summer Open International Tournament remains the club’s most important event. Coaching Clinics for beginners and advanced beginners are held from September up till March.

At times the club organises social and recreational activities and issues an in-house magazine every year.
