University tennis is a great way to get students active. It doesn’t matter whether students play just for fun or to get fit. Or maybe they compete at a serious level. There are lots of opportunities available for universities, to ensure that they offer a varied programme so that all students can play tennis whilst at university, from beginners to performance players.

The Tennis Foundation supports 30 partnership universities in delivering tennis activity at their university. Each of our partnership universities have a student working part time to support tennis activity at the university:  Enhanced Ambassadors (undergraduate students) or University Tennis Coordinators (postgraduate students). We also support other universities with development awards and voluntary ambassador positions. Find out more about our Student Workforce here.
