Looking for the a venue with a bit of feeling, look no further than the Racquet Club.

After taking over the ownership of The Racquet Club back in 2001, a massive refurbishment was undertaken and one floor was opend in 
April 2003 for 18th birthday celebration. The rest of the venue was off limits while the refurb continued until everything finally opened fully in May 2003, with with the bedrooms opening in July 2003.  Since then the Racquet Club has established itself as one of classical wedding venues in Liverpool, steeped in history and situated perfectly next to St Nicholas Church with their beautiful gardens for stunning wedding photography…. so if you are looking for the a venue with a bit of feeling, look no further then The Racquet Club!
