Tennis was first played on Cardiff Arms Park in 1867.[1] The tennis and bowls sections joined with the existing rugby and cricket sections of CAC in the mid-twenties.[2] Ladies Hockey, Baseball and Golf sections joined the CAC in the thirties and Cardiff Hockey Club joined the CAC after World War II.[2] The Tennis section along with the cricket section moved to Sophia Gardens in 1966,[1] and after the Sophia Gardens ground was sold to Glamorgan County Cricket Club in 1998.[1] The tennis section then had no fixed site until in 2003 they amalgamated with Lisvane Tennis Club and moved to a new permanent location in 2003 and became Lisvane (CAC) Tennis Club.[3] Lisvane (CAC) Tennis Club forms the tennis section of Cardiff Athletic Club.
