Tennis

The Tennis Section of Campus Sports aims to make all members, either beginner, or advanced player at home in tennis. The tennis courts at the campus are available as of April 4, 2007. Every member of Campus Sports can use these all-weather courts. Since this year (2014), we have two new section members, who aim to make tennis a part of the Campus’s events, and organize fun, sportive events. To be a member of the Campus Sports Tennis Section thus means to meet, play with or against your other sportive tennis enthusiasts.
