Everything you need to know about tennis at the University of Manchester.


We have a broad range of opportunities to get involved in tennis at The University of Manchester with everything from drop in sessions to high level university competition with our University of Manchester Tennis Club.

All the information you need to know about tennis should be here but if you do have any further questions, we would love to hear from you.

Sporticipate Sessions

Our recreational sport offer is entitled Sporticipate, and is the entry level programme for all students and staff at The University of Manchester.

All sessions, programmes and events are open to all abilities, specifically people who are new to the activity or complete beginners. All sessions provide equipment and the sessions are facilitated by the UoM Sport Workforce.

Sportcipate runs a full weekly drop in timetable, structured blocks of ‘Learn To’ coached sessions and regular large scale events. All are either free or at very low cost, which helps you stay fit and active during your time on campus.

Booking activities with friends

We have lots of availability across the day to play sports at our facilities across the city. You can book courts at our facilities at a time to suit you and play with a group of friends.

We have courts available at the Armitage Sports Centre or at Sugden Sports Centre giving you flexibility on when you play.  Facilities can be booked online for sessions but if you have any additional questions, you can contact the facilities for support.

Tennis Club

The University of Manchester Tennis Club provides an inclusive, supportive and welcoming environment for tennis players of all abilities – whether you’re a beginner who’s never picked up a racquet or a competitor who’s played to a high level. The Club intends to foster player development and experience through offering an accessible tennis programme including coaching, competitive matches and social sessions.
We offer our members:
• Multiple training slots a week with qualified coaches at a range of days and times, as well as more casual hitting sessions.
• For Team players, the opportunity to represent UoM by competing in BUCS.
• The ability to book courts so you can play when you want with friends.
• A Singles League each semester to allow for competitive match play, which is open to all members and the divisions are ranked by ability.
• A great social aspect of the Club, with over 150 members in 2019-20 and regular socials (subject to social distancing).
• For Development Team players, the chance of playing for BUCS teams when needed and competing against other university development teams.
• As the first sport to return after lockdown, UoM Tennis provides students with a safe way to enjoy sport throughout the academic year.

If you have any further questions, please get in touch via email, and check out our social media for further information and regular updates, as things are subject to changes in Covid-19 restrictions.
