There were 125 members and guests in attendance to enjoy an evening of food, wine and dancing to celebrate its 125th anniversary of Formby Lawn Tennis Club. A marquee in the grounds of the club provided a touch of class to this black tie event at a venue where tennis has been played since 1888. The oldest club trophy was on display along with a backdrop of vintage photographs which were projected onto the canvas of the marquee.

Chairman Peter Collinson said: ‘What a fabulous evening to mark this auspicious occasion. We had members from all age groups attending which reflects the deep affection everyone has for this wonderfully friendly club.’

The club is still open to new members. Applicants should contact fltcmembership@btinternet.com
