Tennis

Welcome to Royal Holloway Tennis Club. This year we are looking forward to welcoming all new members joining. We want to make this a year to remember for the club and we are working hard to restructured and optimise the way that the club is run. Here are the key details for the year ahead:

 
Notable Dates
The first week is always a very busy period where we meet all our new members and players, conduct trials and integrate all new players into the team. The dates of these events are on the rh_tennis Instagram page.

Pre-season
To get all of our players ready for the upcoming BUCS and LUSL seasons, training sessions will commence a few weeks before the BUCS and LUSL seasons start. We will also be offering the following opportunities for players:
  • Chance to book 1-to-1 private lessons with LTA accredited level 5 coach (on campus)
  • Organising box leagues and match practice outside of training within the club
  • Participating in friendly matches against local tennis clubs
     
Matches
Matches start in October and progress through the academic year until March.
  • The club has 3 men's & 2 women's teams registered for BUCS. Squad size is between 6-8 per team. Matches will be on Wednesday afternoons.
  • The club has 3 mixed teams registered for LUSL. Squad sizes are larger to give everyone who wants extra matchplay the chance. Matches will be on Saturday morning's/afternoon.
     
Training
Team training times are as follows:
  • Tuesday : 8-10pm (sports centre courts)
    • Women 8-9 pm
    • Men 9-10 pm
  • Friday: 5.30-7.30 pm (sports centre courts)
    • Men & Women group 1 train 5.30-6.30pm
    • Men & Women group 2 train 6.30-7.30pm

The training structure is still under review but this is the best overall way to ensure training is both standard and fair and ensure good integration within the teams!


Socials & Planned Itinerary
Throughout the year, we aim to run plenty of social events off the tennis court to try and ensure everyone within the team gets on well and feels included. These events include:

  • Come In Your Kit SU Nights
  • Medicine Nights 
  • Pub Gatherings
  • House Parties
  • Paintballing, Go-Karting & Top-Golf Trips
  • Team Wimbledon Trip
  • Tennis Club Tour (In June, we will book a team trip somewhere abroad).

We will be posting constant weekly polls on our Instagram so that everyone can vote on or suggest new ideas that we can do as a society to include everyone and have fun off the tennis court!

We will also be running charity events throughout the year - TBA in September!

Contact Us
We are very excited to welcome everyone back, whether it be old or new members, and hope that we can have a very successful and enjoyable year both on and off the court!
