Social tennis is an opportunity for members to get on the courts and play some tennis!
The club comprises members of all standards, from those hoping to try out for the blues teams (university teams), to those wishing to either get back into, or try tennis for the first time.
Social tennis sessions are run throughout the year. During Michaelmas and Lent, on Saturdays from 12:00-2:00pm members of the Blues teams hold a relaxed social training session for social members of the club. This is a great chance for intermediate and advanced members to get to know each other, and make the most of their memberships by building tennis into their weekly schedules. We are incredibly lucky to have the input of Blues players for these sessions; they are an opportunity to get tips from some exceptional players and work on specific areas of your game. The second part of the Saturday session is usually match play to put new skills into action.
Also during Michaelmas and Lent, the Fenner’s courts are also reserved for any social members of the club to play together on Sundays from 10:00am-12:00pm, perfect for anyone who wishes to play without organised coaching, or just prefers to wake up early. Finally, we have set up a new training session aimed at beginners on Sundays from 3:00 to 4:00pm. Social tennis is run throughout Easter term also, although the timings are slightly changed. Please contact the social captains for more information.
The sessions mentioned above are when the Fenner’s courts are specifically reserved for social players, however members of the club are free to play together any time the courts aren’t being used for team training sessions or matches. We have set up a Facebook group to help members to get to know each other and arrange to play, as well as to publicise social events such as pub trips. Requests to join the facebook group will only be approved for confirmed members of the club.
Social tennis aims to be a very low pressure environment, and open to absolutely anyone, so do sign up. If you have any questions, feel free to post them on the above facebook group or email the social captains:
