University Performance Programme

Students wishing to combine a world-class education at the University of Bath with training and competing at national and international level can do so through the University Performance Programme.

Running in tandem with the International High-Performance Tennis Academy, players receive the same world-class coaching as touring professionals based at Team Bath Tennis and represent the University in national BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) competitions on Wednesdays. The club fields two men’s and two ladies’ teams, with the first teams consistently challenging for the top honours.

Players also compete in individual BUCS competitions and many have gone on to represent Great Britain at the World University Games or the annual Master’U BNP Paribas tournament in France.

Support on and off the court

Students on the programme are eligible to apply for a University of Bath Sporting Scholarship or funding from the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS). They can also apply to be a member of the Team Bath Dual Career programme, receiving lifestyle support and advice on how to achieve their full potential in both the sporting and academic arenas.

University tennis is also supported by the Tennis Foundation.
