Organised tennis came to Burnham in the form of the Avenue Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club in 1909. As this was only for the local elite somewhere was needed for the common people, this need was first met by the Baptist Church opening courts in 1922 with the Adult School following in the early 1930’s.
