TeamUCL vs. King's 💜 Varsity 2023 See More

Do you love tennis, simply want to try out the sport or are looking for a place to meet great people and hit some balls? Then UCL Tennis is for you! We offer something for everyone! Ranging from great socials to all kinds of tennis opportunities for all types of players!

UCL Tennis is one of the biggest societies at UCL and one of the largest University Sports Societies in the country. It is full of opportunities to develop your interest in tennis at any level. Whether you’re picking up a racket for the first time, or have been playing competitively for years, there will definitely be a place for you in our community as we offer 4 different levels for our members.

R&D (Recreational & Development Tennis): is designed for all players of all abilities. R&D hosts general hitting and coaching sessions open to everyone who wants to play tennis at UCL. R&D caters for a complete range of abilities, from absolute beginners looking for an introduction to the sport, to players with some tennis experience, to players just looking for a fun hit. If you want to join R&D and do not want to tryout for BUCS or LUSL, you do not need to come trials. Instead we gladly welcome you at our R&D sessions (check our social media pages for info about this!). - £40 for the entire year

Recreational LUSL: is perfect for those wanting to get started on the performance ladder. It is an opportunity for players to advance from hitting in R&D sessions to playing matches. It is the first step for advanced R&D players to progress onto the competitive LUSL and BUCS teams. Weekly training sessions & matches will be held against other London Universities. You do not need to go to trials to join Recreational LUSL, but if you do want to join BUCS & LUSL then you do! - £60 for the entire year

LUSL: is a mixed team which competes in the London Universities Sports League. It is perfect for those looking for a balance between R&D and BUCS. LUSL provides weekly trainings and matches against other London universities. LUSL is a competitive squad but does not require the same commitment and demands as our BUCS league. If you are new and want to join our LUSL team, you need to come to our trials! - £80 for the entire year

BUCS: is our competitive league where our teams compete at a national level. These matches will be played across the country against other top universities. We have three Men’s teams (M1, M2, M3) and two Women’s teams (W1, W2). BUCS requires high commitment and our players are expected to come to weekly trainings, matches and fitness sessions. If you are new and would like to tryout for our BUCS teams, make sure to come to our trials! - £120 for the entire year

Alongside this we have a vibrant social scene with weekly Sports Nights, Team/ Society Dinners, Christmas ball, and sporting events like Varsity which allow the whole society to come together and bleed purple!
