We offer high-level training and competitive opportunities.

We have a comprehensive tennis offering in place which includes three men’s and three women’s teams competing in the BUCS Leagues. Members also have opportunities to play in the local leagues for the Northumberland Club. 

We hold intensive weekly training sessions, led by the University’s LTA Level 5 Master Performance Coach John Henderson. He is also the Head of Tennis at the Northumberland Club.

Performance Sport has a partnership in place with the prestigious Northumberland Tennis and Squash Club situated in Jesmond. This means you can take advantage of a joint membership which gives our players booking access to the courts and the health and fitness area as well as the café and bar area.

Tennis is part of the University’s Racket Sports Programme with the aim to be one of the country’s top centres of excellence for racket sports.
