WELCOME TO READING UNIVERSITY TENNIS CLUB
We have TWO MENS TEAMS AND ONE LADIES TEAM that play in the BUCS leagues and knockout tournaments. Each team will have four players seeded in order of strength. There are between ten and fifteen competitive matches a year and matches take place on Wednesdays with six matches per team (two doubles and four singles).

The club hosts several TOURNAMENTS throughout the year. The summer term tournaments take the form of one grass court tournament (this is a serious tournament and sorts the best from the rest), and one socially orientated tournament held on the hard courts.The club hosts a range of SOCIALS a term (normally once every 2-3 weeks). This is the perfect opportunity to make some great friends in the tennis club and most importantly, have a good time! These socials are always the best nights of the year...normally taking on a theme, such as cowboys, army, rubix cube and the ever popular pub golf! We also host a Christmas formal to give everyone the opportunity to get suited and booted for the festive season.
During FRESHERS WEEKS, come and see us at the Sports Fayre where you can sign up and speak to members of the committee as well as have a hit on our mini net on the grass outside.
