Welcome Freshers! Warwick Tennis is one of largest and most diverse sports clubs on campus, catering for players of all abilities; from complete beginners and infrequent players, all the way through top level players competing internationally. We’ve a load of ways for you to get involved with us in the coming weeks – both sporty and socially. Take a look and see what catches your eye! Join the Facebook group here to stay up to date with all the info about what's going on.
From 10am – 5pm on Wednesday 26th September 2018, all sports club set up camp in the Sports Centre offering a chance for all students, new and old, to learn and ask questions about each club. Look out for us in our exec shirts and come over for a chat – we’d love to meet you, tell you what we have to offer and answer any questions you may have.
THE POSTGRAD Sports Fair will take place on the 23rd September!
We have taster sessions taking place on the Westwood outdoor courts on the following days:
Wednesday 3rd October
Sunday 7th October
To help freshers locate the Tennis Centre, we will have an exec member waiting for you outside Rootes Grocery Store before every session! The walk over can be a bit lengthy so they’ll be leaving 15 minutes before each session – make sure you’re there before 12:45 and 2:15 on Wednesday and 2:45 and 4:15 on Sunday. They’ll be very noticeable in their exec shirts and/or Warwick tennis hoodies!
We welcome players of all abilities to all the sessions. Balls and a limited supply of spare rackets are provided.
The Tennis Club has three Men’s teams and two Women’s teams that compete regionally in BUCS tournaments. The ONLY way to get onto the teams is to try out for a place at team trials.
Trial dates 2018:
WOMEN'S TEAM: Tuesday 2nd and Friday 5th of October
MEN'S TEAM: Wednesday 3rd and Sunday 7th at the Westwood Indoor Tennis Centre.
In order to secure a time slot for a trial session, you must place your name on a list by visiting us at Sports Fair on the 26th September. We recommend not leaving it too close to the 6:00pm deadline on the Wednesday as the best slots are likely to be filled. Find out more info here.
The Tennis club offers some of the largest and best socials on campus. Weekly Circling (more info HERE) forms the backbone of our social calendar but we also hold regular meals, nights out and sober socials away from campus – a fantastic chance for Freshers to escape the Warwick bubble. To find out a calendar of upcoming socials, please check out the Socials page.
Throughout terms 1 and 2, we run a box league. Players are places into a box of four players of similar abilities and face off in a round robin format over the course of three weeks. At the end of each three week cycle, players are promoted and another cycle starts. Find out more information here and look out for an email in your inbox early in week 2.
Believe it or not, Tennis isn’t just a one sport club! We have a highly competitive 11 a side football team that plays in the weekly intra-mural leagues. Click HERE for more info.
