UTC Training and National Ambassador Training Day 2016

This year our annual UTC Training saw all of our 24 UTC’s come together over 3 days to be trained on a broad range of aspects relating to University Tennis. In additional to the content, the training provided the students with an ideal opportunity to network with other universities and share ideas for the forthcoming academic year.

The National Ambassador Training Day was held on Thursday 8th September 2016 and saw over 100 students and staff from 65 universities attend our annual University Student Training Day. The training day was a great opportunity for universities to find out about ways that they could enhance their offer for university students, network with other universities and to create actions for the forthcoming academic year.
