Community Engagement

The Tennis Club is passionate about developing tennis within the local St Andrews area, and providing more opportunities for students, local children and the wider community to be active and get involved in the game.

Over the years the club has developed a strong relationship with the local primary schools and the St Andrews Community Tennis Club, running after-school clubs, kids’ tournaments and school taster sessions to encourage children to take up tennis. The club also works closely with St Andrews Lawn Tennis Club to direct the children and their parents to additional coaching opportunities.

More recently the club has linked up with Madras College in St Andrews to offer tennis as an option in their PE schedule, with sessions supported in part by student volunteers from the club.

Access to the indoor tennis centre at the University now provides greater capacity for extending the range of activities we can offer, and increases the opportunities for our students to give something back to tennis and the local community.
