EVOLUTION Malayan Lawn Tennis was formed in 1921 and held the first National Inter-team Tournament in 1923 between Northern Malaya and Southern Malaya; the Guillemard Cup (Men) and the McCabe Reay Cup (Women).
The Game of tennis was considered a noble or colonial game as it was brought in by the British to Malaya with high ranking government officers encouraged to learn and play tennis. Courts were mostly clay and grass with most courts built near British residences and at all District Officer's houses across Malaysia.
Lawn Tennis Association of Malaysia (LTAM) was formed in 1965 as an affiliate to the International Tennis Federation (ITF). Today, LTAM functions as the governing body and the promoter of tennis in Malaysia with fifteen affiliates, one from each state and territory in Malaysia and the Armed Forces.
TennisMalaysia is the national governing body for tennis in Malaysia, and has since established a world class tennis platform for grassroots and professionals alike. In March 2014, TennisMalaysia partnered with the Malaysian National Sports Council to open a National Tennis Academy at the National Tennis Centre in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim (Jalan Duta), Kuala Lumpur.
