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.

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, even though I was a beginner when I joined, I was still able to have access to the indoor courts and top coaching. Alongside this, there have been many recreational club events providing a competitive aspect to tennis for people who are not part of the teams" -Stuart Parsons
