Key Information

Scottish Student Tennis has an opportunity for every ability, from the five men’s and three women’s BUCS leagues housing some of the best players in the UK, to monthly give-it-a-go days which involve those who don’t quite make the teams and introduces them to fun, competitive tennis.

Upcoming Tennis Events

You might want to know…

  • For those who don’t quite make the teams or are new to the game there are many opportunities to participate with fun competitions in different venues every month. These vary from timed singles and doubles events, mixed doubles, touch tennis (a new variation on tennis which allows skilful play to flourish on a smaller court) and racketlon (a tournament played over four racket sports). These events are great days out representing your university or college and getting a taster for competitive tennis.
