Competing Teams

We have 4 tennis teams playing in BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) - a Men's 1st, 2nd and 3rd and Women's team, and each team is also entered into their respective cups. The format for each match is 4 singles matches (best of 3 sets) & 2 doubles matches (2 sets, then championship tie-break if 1 set all). To prepare for these matches there are 2 training sessions a week for the teams on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons with our coach.

Saturday Social Tennis

Every Saturday we hold a social tennis sessions where people of all abilities can come and have a hit, play some games and meet new people. These sessions are 2 hours long costing £1 and take place at the courts at Falmer Sports Complex 11am-1pm. If you don't have a racquet there are ones to borrow so come along and get involved, we'd love to see you there! 


Socials will generally involve dressing to a specific theme, then meeting up at falmer bar on campus or a pub in Brighton and going on to more pubs & clubs. If that's not quite your thing or if you fancy a change we also hold quizzes etc.

Expect an occasional house party as well.

The Socials are open to all, irrespective of whether you play tennis or not, so bring your friends along!


Any tennis courts that are referred to on this site are the ones at Falmer Sports Complex, which can be found by first locating 'Falmer Sports Complex' (no.36) on the campus map - www.sussex.ac.uk/aboutus/findus/campusmaps. The courts are 3 minutes walk south east from the complex, over the playing fields, just beyond a row of trees.

To hire a court you can either become a member of Falmer Sports Complex (gold membership gives you free court hire year round and free access to the gym) or you can pay per court per hour. Racket hire is also available from the same building for £2.
