Performance and Development
What is Performance and Development?
Whether you want to pick up a racket for the first time, want to play social tennis and meet new people at uni, or want to train competitively and didn't quite make it into the team, Performance and Development is for you.
Consisting of a variety of standard - based squads, with Development catering for beginners while Performance focusing on more advanced players, our programme offers both social and competitive tennis for those of all standards; all are welcome! These sessions are lead by a Level 2 or higher professional coach on the University Courts, who can specifically monitor player development and even refer high quality players to retrial at the season's midpoint for the teams.
FAST4 Development League
In the second semester of the year, the Tennis Club will have development teams entered into the FAST4 development where teams will compete against other universities. These teams are for our non-BUCS members who still want to play competitive tennis against other Universities.
Development and Performance players will also have the chance to play in organised matches against players and other local clubs, hosted on weeknights or at weekend.
