The University of St Andrews Tennis Club is one of the largest sports clubs in St Andrews and it is our ethos is to provide playing opportunities for all abilities. Our members are passionate about tennis and we provide an environment in which you can improve as a player or just meet new friends either on the court or at our famous Wednesday night socials! We have 4 floodlit, artificial grass courts which are located at the University of St Andrews Sports Centre. Additionally, we recently opened a 4-court indoor tennis center in 2018. This new addition adds a huge benefit to our tennis program year-round. Tennis at St Andrews is a very welcoming sport to all ability and commitment levels.
There are a variety of different ways you can participate in tennis at the University of St Andrews. For more experienced players looking for a competitive environment, we have 3 squads consisting of 12-16 players for both men and women. From these squads players are selected to represent the University at weekly matches, typically held on Wednesday afternoons. Trials for the squad teams are held at the beginning of first semester during Freshers Week.
However, there are also many ways to participate in tennis in a more social atmosphere. We offer weekly tennis lessons for a range of different abilities from beginner to advanced run by our experienced committee members. These coaching sessions run for 30 weeks throughout the semester. We also have weekly social tennis sessions on Fridays 6-8 pm and Sundays 3-5 pm. These social sessions consist of a variety of different mini-tournaments and games that players of all ability levels can participate in. Social tennis is also a great way to meet other players from the University.
