Membership information

We have five different membership tiers for tennis players ranging from absolute beginner to those representing the uni. Find the level of tennis right for you.

To join UBTC, you need both a sports pass and a UBTC membership. 

The sports pass is purchased from the university in order to access the courts. Any sports pass is suitable, so if you have/want a gym membership then you can purchase one of the 'Active' memberships. If not the cheapest option is the #WeAreBristol pass. Memberships can be purchased annually (which works out cheaper overall) or monthly (for less commitment).

The UBTC membership is purchased to access the sessions that we put on and for coaches and balls. More information on each of our memberships is available below. 

IMPORTANT: Please don't buy a UBTC membership before you've spoken to a coach or committee member about which one will be right for you. This especially goes for advanced A and B and BUCS which are invite only. You cannot just purchase a membership and turn up.
