From touring professionals playing at Grand Slams through to enthusiastic amateurs wanting to keep fit and have fun, Team Bath’s all-encompassing tennis programme has something for everyone.
An inspiring centre for tennis
Team Bath Tennis is one of just four LTA International High Performance Centres in the UK – recognised as having exceptional tennis facilities available to performance athletes (junior and senior), members of the public and students.
The eight indoor courts and ten outdoor courts – four hard, four artificial clay and two American clay – at the Sports Training Village, plus other facilities at associated hub clubs, are used by more than 1,500 people of all ages and abilities every week.
Our tennis programme is divided into four main areas:
- International High-Performance Tennis Academy – the pinnacle of the Team Bath programme featuring top professional players and rising junior stars. The current senior players include Rio 2016 Olympian and Grand Slam quarter-finalist Marcus Daniell, Great Britain Davis Cup player and former Junior Wimbledon champion Liam Broady, and Great Britain Federation Cup player Anna Smith. Around 20-30 school-age players also access the programme every week. As well as training in the world-class facilities at the University of Bath, all Academy players are joined and supported by our coaches as they travel to tournaments at home and abroad.
- University Performance Programme – running in tandem with the International High-Performance Tennis Academy, this is for players who wish to combine an outstanding education at the University of Bath with training and competing on the national and international stage at such events at the World University Games and the annual Master’U BNP Paribas team tournament.
- University Club Programme – aimed at students who wish to combine their studies with mid-to-good standard tennis.
- Club Programme – our tennis provision for junior and adult players of all abilities looking to make use of our state-of-the-art facilities. We have recently been named as a LTA Local Player Development Centre.
