The club was originally formed in 1948 under the name of Ocker Hill United and played in the Wolverhampton and District Amateur League. In 1965, the club joined the West Midlands (Regional) League when it added a new Division One, which commenced play in 1967. In order to become more closely linked with the town of Tipton and its residents, the club marked the occasion by changing its name to Tipton Town F.C.

The club's first major success came in 1984 when both the Division One title and Divisional League Cup were won, leading to promotion to the Premier Division.

Tipton were relegated in 1991 but returned to the league's top division seven years later. After a few years nearer to the bottom of the table than the top, they finished third in 2003 and second the following year (being beaten to promotion by Malvern Town). In the 2004-05 season they dominated the league, achieving promotion with four league games to spare and scoring over 100 goals. The same season saw Tipton achieve their best ever run in the FA Vase, reaching the fifth round. The 2005-06 season saw Tipton's debut in the Midland Alliance.

The club have been able to enter the FA Cup since the 2006-07 season, reaching the First Round Qualifying in each of their first two seasons in the competition.

Steve Bull, who scored more than 300 goals for Wolverhampton Wanderers and was capped 13 times by England, played for Tipton Town during the early 1980s before signing for West Bromwich Albion. He played in Tipton's victorious 1984 side, and was born just a few streets away from the ground on the Moat Farm estate.

Tipton are now an established Midland League Premier side and have finished in 5th place on two occasions. The 2008–09 season saw Tipton record their highest ever points total, with 78 points from 42 games. Tipton were Walsall Senior Cup finalists but lost to Rushall Olympic.
 
Ground
During their early years the club hired the private works ground of Lee Howl & Co, but in the early 1970s, the football club, in conjunction with other local clubs including Tipton Harriers athletics club, opened the Tipton Sports Academy, a 19-acre multi-purpose sports complex constructed out of former waste and spoilage land.1967-68 Joined West Midlands (Regional) League Division One
