Tennis balls and nets are provided, but please bring your own racquet or rent one at the front desk of Max Bell Centre.

Eligibility

Due to the limited space and availability of courts on campus, the Tennis Club has a capacity of 30 members for each semester.

At the beginning of each semester, the Club uses the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) to check that a tennis player meets an eligibility requirement.

This system is used to create a safe environment and help players to find partners who have the relative same level of tennis playing.

Since the limitation of courts and availabilities, we do not provide coaching programs to our members. So the basic tennis skills of Ground Strokes (forehand & backhand), Return of Serve, Net Play and Serve are required for everyone who is interested in joining the Club.

The players who meet the NTRP 3.5 level of tennis will join the main Roster A, and the players who do not meet the NTRP 3.5 level will join the Roster B. Roster A and Roster B will play on different time/courts. However, all members including both rosters will have equal access to any social events and tournaments.

How to join

We hold a tennis skills assessment during the first two weeks of each semester. Anyone who are interested in joining the club is required to come in for a free visit, and we will assess your tennis skills level in order to have the right placement for you.

    Volleyball is leisure/competitive club

Additional club details

Volleyball is offered over two sessions per week. We encourage members to choose only one session to attend. Additionally, both club days are currently/usually open to all levers (beginner, intermediate, and advanced), however, depending on registration numbers and player level/skill distribution, the executives may choose to split the days for particular levels to better serve the needs of all members.

Specifically, one day will be "Recreational" (open to all levels, particularly oriented towards beginners/lower level intermediates) and the other day "Competitive" (open only to higher-level intermediate and advanced players).

Players are asked to attend the days to which they are well-suited for. The implementation of the split days is due to safety concerns and to enhance the experience for all club members.
