Whether you have never hit a tennis ball in your life, or youâ€™ve practically grown up with a tennis racket in your hand, this club is perfect you! The University of Portsmouth Tennis Club offers you a great opportunity to improve, and more importantly, have fun.
We are lucky enough to have secured a partnership with Sport and Rec and the Portsmouth Tennis Academy (PTA). This partnership utilises the Sport and Rec booking system to allow tennis members unlimited use of the courts all year round. In order to take advantage of this membership benefit, you will need to book your court at the PTA up to five hours in advance to secure your hour of free tennis.
As well of this amazing opportunity for all club members, our social players have a guaranteed 2 hours of coaching at the indoor Portsmouth Tennis Academy, using their experienced and qualified coaches. The coaching will be suitable for all levels of ability and will include drills, fun games, and the opportunity for match play. In addition to coaching, social members can opt to play in competitive matches with their fellow members in the Box League. There is also the opportunity to play touch tennis, led by a qualified touch tennis leader.
This is a massive year for our team players too, with the menâ€™s 1st being promoted to the premier south division and the 2nd team being promoted to division 2A. Team players are guaranteed 4 hours of training as well as a weekly BUCS match. Due to unfortunate events last year, there is no womenâ€™s BUCS team, but we are fully committed to supporting female players wishing to play competitively, with the aim of having a team entered into BUCS for the following year.
We are looking for as many people as possible to be a part of another historic year for the club so make sure you come and experience our taster day, or showcase your talent at our trials if playing in the BUCS leagues on a Wednesday afternoon is something that interests you!
