BUCS Squads

The tennis programme currently supports three Women’s training squads and four Men’s training squads, all of whom compete in the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) Championship.

Each squad receives coached sessions throughout the year. Each week, in preparation for their matches, players in the “A” squads, with the top 12 men and 12 women, receive two coached sessions, two strength and conditioning sessions, and a match practice session.

The Tennis Club recruits annually in September, taking on both those completely new to the sport and those who have played previously. Selection for team squads is carried out initially through trials, but is ongoing throughout the year, depending on player development at training sessions and achievements during match play.
