We are DMU Tennis!
DMU Tennis is a sports society that has grown rapidly in recent years to establish itself as one of the biggest societies at DMU. In the 2016/17 academic year the Mens first team won their BUCS league, sealing promotion and the Womens firsts had a competitive year finishing mid-table respectivley. The sports society won 'Team of the year' at the 2017 DMU Sports awards to top off an excellent year for everyone involved with the society.
A Mens development team will be established ready for the 2017/18 academic year, hoping to feild a team to compete in local Leicester leagues. This is as a result of such a talented squad of players pushing for places in the first team. Our level 4 qualified coach Chris Whitmore trains us 11 hours a week including match day support and guidance.

Everyone and anyone is welcome to join the society from people who have never picked up a racket, those who have played before but wish to improve and those who are wishing to play competitvley and represent the University. Some of our key members involved with the society are social members, so don't be afraid to come along and get involved even if it's just to our social nights out as a big group! A large proportion of the society don't play tennis, and come along just for the social aspect!
Like every society at DMU, we go out together on a Wednesday night as a big group, going to multiple bars and finishing at the Students Unions nightclub. This is the best night of the week and not to be missed! There are multiple games and fancy dress themes throughout the year and this is a brilliant laugh with a great group of people, guranteed to be one of the highlights of your time at university.
Socials: 7.30pm start every Wednesday (Check the Facebook page for weekly posts). Boys wear black shirts and girl wear whatever you like! (Unless its fancy dress).
As well as Wednesday nights there are various social events in the calader such as Tennis outings (Bowling, Quaser etc.), Christmas meals and charity events!
