The Tennis Club is a mixed club with 2 Men's Teams and 1 Women's Team regularly competing in BUCS leagues and tournaments. Some players also have opportunity to play in local leagues. Teams are selected through trials at the start of the year, and the level of play is competitive. The club is run in partnership with the Hallamshire Tennis Club, providing access to high quality coaching and facilities for Hallam students. Weekly training sessions are run at the Hallamshire Tennis & Squash Club on Ecclesall Road on weekdays and weekends. Matches are typically on a Wednesday afternoon. Regular social sport sessions are also run for less competitive and developing players.
Social Tennis is based at the Hallamshire Tennis and Squash Centre. Come and play Tennis in a fun and relaxed setting. No need to bring anyone with you, as our Student Sport Activator will introduce you to participants and rotate you on and off court. If you don’t know the rules or want to learn how to improve your performance, instruction can be provided upon request. All equipment is provided, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Playing abilities varies from complete beginners to club players, where possible you will be grouped with players similar to your own ability and sessions can be adapted to suit a variety of needs.
We've worked with the Hallamshire to put on a special heavily discounted membership offer for Hallam students to pay a term-time only off peak membership in order to be able to book courts to play tennis casually with friends. The membership offer is seperate to the Team Hallam club membership, and is mainly aimed at people who just want to play socially during their own time. It runs from1st October to 21st December, stops over the Christmas break, then starts again from 14th January to 19th April.
Hallamshire Student 6 month Tennis Membership = £88
Hallamshire Student 9 month Tennis Membership = £110
