University College Tennis Club

Whether you’re the new Novak Djokovic or haven’t ever picked up a racket and just want to get into the sport, University College Tennis Club is here to help! Contrary to common belief, tennis is a sport that is played not just during the summer, but all year round. This year, we will be running taster sessions as often as possible in the first two terms (as you will discover, the Durham weather is a cruel mistress) and during summer, there will be weekly training sessions in preparation for our weekly matches in the intercollegiate league. Whatever your ability, come along and play!

If the running and sweating part of tennis doesn’t particularly appeal to you, perhaps our infamous socials will. This year, I’d like us to have a few socials, each of which will coincide and be themed around each Grand Slam tennis tournament of the year. And who could forget our main event of the year, Tennis and Pimms?!

I don’t think you need Hawk Eye to see that University Tennis is in, and all other college sports are out. (That’s a lie. Get involved in as many as you possibly can. They’re all great. But you get this gist…)

We look forward to seeing you this year!
