About us

The LSE tennis club has plenty of options for you to play tennis during your studies and meet fellow LSE players! All our members can find players of their level and compete in championships against other universities. The club has both a social team and a competitive team to match everybody’s commitment and motivation.

Our competitive team is for people with prior experience in tennis, who would like to compete across the UK in the BUCS division and help keep the LSE tennis team in the highest divisions. Tournaments take place every Wednesday and trainings take place indoors twice a week. Our club focuses on maintaining high-quality trainings. 

Our social team offers members a chance to play tennis on campus every Wednesday. The team also participate in local competitions against other London Universities (LUSL).

Our main aim is to develop our players’ potential as well as creating an inclusive and motivating atmosphere. We are committed to give our members the best opportunities to both play tennis and make friends. All our training groups are organized according to the level of the player and not according to gender.

We believe being part of a sport club is also about events outside of practice. We all take part in Sports night and get together before for a drink and activities (with non-alcoholic options). But we also aim to organize events during the day and weekends. For example, we will be organizing friendly single and double tournaments within the club.

If you enjoy playing tennis, joining the tennis club is the best way to meet fellow LSE players and take a healthy break from classes. At the LSE tennis clubs, our members all have the chance to make suggestions for trainings and socials. We are excited to meet new players that help building the club with us.
