Leeds Beckett boasts one of the top university tennis programmes in the UK. With 11 teams and 2 development squads the tennis club are regularly the highest BUCS points-earning programme in the university. In 2017/18 the club won 8 BUCS Leagues and 2 Cup competitions.

Onsite, we have 12 courts you'll have access to, including 4 indoor acrylic and 4 clay courts. The centre provides opportunities for players of all levels, from those first picking up a racket to those participating at a national and international level. We believe that tennis can be for everyone, and we hope that as a part of our club we can provide you with an opportunity to have amazing experience and gain valuable skills on or off the court.

Playing for Beckett has been one of the highlights of my time at uni, it has helped me to improve my tennis and build my character. Every time I step out on the court it is competitive, fun, and there is a great vibe within the teams.
