The Bath Tennis Club Community
The long-term survival and ability to build a successful club relies fundamentally on developing future tennis stars. Embedding positive experiences combined with developing competent hand eye co-ordination, enhancing SAQs – speed, agility, and quickness. As well as nurturing fundamental knowledge of the game technically, tactically, physically and mentally. Youth Tennis is at the heart of our club program and is delivered by Bath Ace and Rich Little Tennis.

Bath Spa University Tennis Club
Beyond youth, with the lack of facilities Bath Tennis Club has worked hard to support the Bath Spa University Tennis Society to formalise into an established and thriving social tennis club, operating 3 dedicated group club play sessions a week for their members, who in turn are also able to integrate fully into the Bath TC Tennis and Social Timetable. In most recent years, BSU has been able to field competitive teams to play regional University matches, proudly calling Bath Tennis Club their tennis home.
