The University of Nottingham offers a fantastic opportunity for students of all abilities to play tennis. This year the club has an impressive 13 teams competing in the BUCS league, 6 squads in the Development league and a strong social tennis programme.
Nottingham University Tennis Club is lucky to have a strong relationship with the Nottingham Tennis centre adjacent to the University, where we make use of their first-class facilities. Training sessions, club (social) sessions and matches are played throughout the year at the Nottingham Tennis centre's indoor and outdoor courts.
Club tennis allows players to participate in bi-weekly sessions to improve their tennis skills while having fun and offers a great amount of flexibility. Groups are divided into 3 student led sessions of similar ability (beginner, intermediate and advanced) so that you can make the most out of your game and these sessions are run every week on a Wednesday and Sunday. This year we are really fortunate to have secured access to the courts at the Nottingham Tennis Centre, giving club tennis access to 19 outdoor courts every Wednesday, along with access to the NTC's indoor courts/the bubble courts on a Sunday.
As well as these regular sessions, your membership fee of only £55 gives you access to:
- fitness sessions, including cardio tennis!
- socials, and more!
These sessions are run by your Club Tennis Committee. Any questions please contact (Jodie) Grace Woolford, Club Tennis President at firstname.lastname@example.org
The great advantage of club tennis is that you can choose your commitment, allowing you to sculpt the sessions to your ability and interests. Whether you want to play competitively in tournaments against other UoN tennis players or just play casually with friends, this is the club for you!

Development training is available for members of all standards, and provides training from the club coaches. Beginners and Intermediates members train on Tuesdays and Thursdays 12-1pm at NTC, and Advanced members train on Mondays and Fridays 8.30-10am at NTC.
Development Squad members also train on Tuesday mornings (8.30am at NTC). These are members who have been through the coaches' ranking process, and have been selected to play for the Dev Squads, of which there are 3 Men's and 3 Women's. These squads are less intense than teams, and selection for matches is based on commitment and attitude, and is split as evenly as possible between members to ensure everyone has the opportunity to play matches. This year all the Men's and Women's Dev Squads are in the same league, as this is a new fixture this year, and will therefore play both internal and external matches as part of the league.
Any questions about Development Tennis, please contact Alex Glen, Development Officer at email@example.com
This year Teams Tennis is at the highest level it has ever been. We have an incredible 13 teams playing in the BUCS League - 7 Men's and 6 Women's. They are led by the Teams Committee and Club Captains, and train on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays at NTC, and play matches every Wednesday.
For more information, please contact Millie Doherty (Teams President) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sam Canning (Teams Vice-President) at email@example.com
You can join the Tennis Club online, or by paying by cash or card in Student Services in Portland Building.
There will be several IMS tournaments throughout the year. Players' results for these tournaments will gain points which contribute towards a league table running through both semesters. The system is roughly based on the professional ATP structure with added opportunities to gain bonus points. More information will be available at http://www.su.nottingham.ac.uk/sports/ims/tennis/
Engage sessions are designed to give potential members an opportunity to experience club tennis, or introduce the world of tennis to complete beginners. They are held at 1pm on Wednesday afternoons at NTC, and are led by Grace Woolford or Jack Richardson.
Any questions, please contact Grace (Engage Coordinator) at firstname.lastname@example.org
