Thinking about picking the racket up for the first time in years? Inspired by this summer’s sporting events? Bangor University Tennis Club has many different forms of the game to offer at all levels. Having only been an official club for around five years we have done well to retain members and play the majority of our BUCS fixtures. Now, as a more established AU Club, it has been decided that the time has come for a new ‘game face’. With the help of our new committee we will be delivering our normal training sessions but also be offering a wider range of tennis that has ever been available at the university before. This will be implemented by the new university tennis coordinator (Sally Hoyle) who will also work alongside the committee. The UTC position is unique to university tennis and we are lucky enough to be one of 22 universities in the UK to have invested in this role. The aim of the UTC is to increase participation and development within university tennis. This will be achieved by having more training times available for all levels (from beginners through to BUCS players) and also having more diverse forms of tennis (for example, Cardio Tennis, Beach Tennis and Touch Tennis). Alongside this new and exciting programme of play we will be offering a great social scene with plenty of opportunity to meet new people and enjoy our tennis themed events.
If you like the sound of this welcoming, established club with a new and more exciting edge, then get involved in the ‘tennis buzz’ by looking out for our stand at the up and coming ‘Serendipity’/ Fresher’s fair! We look forward to seeing you there and giving you more information on our action packed Fresher’s Week Programme.
