What We Do

The University of Bath Tennis Club is the largest sports club within the university and provides the opportunity for players of all standards to make tennis a key part of their life whilst here at Bath. Whether you have the talent and dedication to be a BUCS team player, want to train hard at the sport you love with other like-minded people, want to improve your skills with coaching or just fancy meeting some new people for a hit, the club has it all to offer. 

We also have a tradition of BUCS success, and our rigorous performance training programme provides team members with access to the highest quality of coaching expertise in addition to strength and conditioning.

Whatever your previous experience in tennis, whether you are a complete beginner, have played tennis for your school and/or club, or even competed nationally or internationally, we are certain that we have something to offer you.

So go ahead and GET INVOLVED in the most exciting and fastest-growing society within the University- we can’t wait to meet you!

“The Tennis at Bath is fantastic – from complete beginners to internationally ranked players, all of our members can enjoy access to world-class coaching and facilities at the University. On top of this, there are plenty of opportunities for both recreational members and BUCS players to make lifelong friends and experience great competitions” – Ashley Stoneman, Club Chair 2019-20.
