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. We are aiming to host a sponge ball charity tournament university wide and we look forward to seeing lots of entries.
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 Wimbledon Whites, Camo or Tennis related themes with 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.
