Fancy getting involved in some Tennis through the UNIversal Sport programme?
Well there has never been a better opportunity to do so than with the our University Tennis Programme.
Whether you are looking to play tennis competitively or jyust want to have some fun - there is an opportunity for all to be involved. This year has seen an increase in the availability of court time for both performance club training and recreational tennis opportunities for students who want to be the next Federer or Nadal, and those that have never held a racket before.
The Tennis Club and University Tennis Programme is overseen by Head Coach Jason Poole who is the University of Gloucestershire Tennis Co-ordinator (UTC). This is partly funded by the LTA and the Tennis Foundation. Jason is one of fourteen UTC’s in the country and has been a great addition to the programme this year.
