University of Sheffield Tennis Club
University of Sheffield
The University of Sheffield Tennis Club welcomes all university students of any ability. The club has four teams (two Men's and two Women's) who represent the University in the Northern BUCS leagues. We also have a development squad which competes in an intra-mural league with Sheffield Hallam University. The club also offers weekly social sessions, club tournaments and frequent socials ending in ROAR the University Sports night. For the past two years running, the club has won the 'Commitment to Inclusions' award given to one sport club at the University of Sheffield.
All 4 of our teams compete in the Northern BUCS leagues. The teams also compete in and support the annual Varsity Season. It is the pinnacle event in the University sport's calendar where each sport competes against Sheffield Hallam University in order to gain points for the overall Varsity win. As a Club we share the University’s undefeated FIVE YEAR VICTORY over Hallam. At Varsity 2018, the tennis teams won all their matches against Hallam- a new record for the tennis club and something we are very proud of!
This past year, we proudly supported the Sheffield Children's Hospital and held various fundraising events throughout the year, including a 24 hour rally-a-thon and our fancy dress May Day tournament. The club is also an avid supporter of the University's #weareinternational and #ThisGirlCan campaigns and we hold a deep commitment to retaining our international members and alumni.
