Tennis

Liverpool University Tennis Club is growing quickly and is fast becoming one of the biggest and best societies to be a part of at the University.

Our Programme

We have a huge programme that runs throughout the week, with sessions available for players of all standards. We’ve got a team of amazing student coaches, able to provide all the tips and techniques you need in a relaxed and entertaining manner!!

All our sessions are included in the annual AU membership fee of just £40, terrific value for membership of a tennis club!

For those who have never played tennis before, we run beginners coaching sessions once a week, where you can learn the basics of the game and meet/play with players of a very similar standard. You won’t need any equipment, (rackets, balls etc) we’ll provide it all for you. It really is perfect for BEGINNERS!

Our intermediate level coaching session is also very popular. Suited to players who have played before and are looking to improve their game but perhaps haven’t played much competitive tennis. Our student coaches excellently pass on tactical knowledge of the game. We often see our players improve incredible amounts over the course of the year and are constantly introducing more opportunities for member to practice competitive tennis at their level.

One of our newer sessions is Cardio Tennis! Cardio Tennis is a high energy fitness activity set to music that combines the best features of our sport with cardiovascular exercise, delivering the ultimate, full body, calorie burning aerobic workout. In about an hour, you can get an AMAZING workout, socialize, and enjoy tennis - all at once. It is a very social and fun class for players of all ability levels taught by fully qualified and experienced coaches. If you've never played tennis before it is a fantastic way to be introduced to the sport alongside beginners and if you are an experienced high-level tennis player, it is the best way to improve your fitness within the sport.

Finally, new for the 2018-19 year we have an invitational ‘B’ Squad training session for those on the brink of breaking into the competitive squads, with the club captains able to impart the experience and advice to improve you as a player. In the past a similar session was run known as development training. The changes were made to reflect the new opportunities for players to compete with the competitive squads.

Competition

From the very top athletes to those who are hoping to develop some match experience, our club welcomes players who are motivated to improve. We have 2 strong Men’s teams and 2 highly successful Women’s teams.

Our team players have the option to train every day of the week and hence the performance aspect of our programme continues to strive, with recent successes in Varsity, BUCS leagues and the Christie Cup. In particular the successes of our women’s 1st team are something our university can and should be incredibly proud of.

Social

The social side of Liverpool University Tennis Club is not to be missed. Consistently hosting huge socials, with some of the largest AU night turn outs of any sport. There really is a social event for almost any occasion. Our social year is always guaranteed to be packed! Tours abroad are organised annually by our fantastic social secs.
