Here at SUTC we believe that all levels of tennis players deserve to get involved in the joys of tennis. Welcoming people who have never played before to people wishing to compete against other universities! SUTC is not just about tennis but also about having fun and forming life long friends and memories though tennis and our 'SMASHING' social scene, with additional events of Christmas Balls, overseas tours (most recently with a week in Barcelona), our newly introduced boat ball and Varsity matches against Portsmouth.
To welcome all those who want to get involved at any level we offer a four-tiered system ranging across levels of ability, from BUCS to social.
For BUCS, We have 2 gentlemen's teams and 2 ladies' teams which take part in BUCS (British University and Colleges Sport) tennis leagues. They have 2 training sessions per week, one with a professional coach, and one run by our very capable captain.
For our performance squad, we have 2 sessions per week, one ran by a coach and one run by the captain. Additionally, local league matches will be played at weekends
Our development squad consists of 4 separate squads. Each has weekly coaching and have the opportunity to play internal matches at the club. This squad s for those who haven't played before and want coaching as well as those who are still developing their tennis ability.
Finally we have our casual squad. This runs on a Sunday, and is open to all. Whether you want to take up tennis for the first time with other beginners or you play tennis regularly, there is a place here for you.
All clubs and societies within the Students' Union are run entirely by students. The student committee for Tennis this year are:
Female Development Captain
