About Us

The purpose of the Tennis Club is to provide fitness, fun and friendship to students, staff and the community, and to promote tennis as a lifelong sport.

Play is recreational in nature with members ranging from intermediate to advanced and everything in between. The Club holds a number of social activities and tournaments throughout the year for its members.

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

Eligibility

Due to the limited space and availibility 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. You can click HERE to retrieve the NTPR Rating Guide.

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.

**NOTE: Membership with the Tennis Club is open to students, staff and community members. However, we will take priority to U of M students and U of M staff.
