    Tennis at the USC: how does it work?

    • There are 8 tennis courts of which 4 are covered all year through.
    • You can reserve a court with your tennis free play membership. Check the timetable. See the reservation rules.
    • You can make a reservation for a 60 minutes time slot at once.
    • You can rent a court permanently or onetime.
    • Tennis courses start 6x a year.
    • New at USC Tennis: Padel, a different racket, but as much fun. In Spain it is the biggest sport besides soccer. Now it conquers the Netherlands, starting in Amsterdam. Padel is a combination of squash and tennis. USC Tennis offers two permanent courts since April 2017. Check Padel!

    Tennis courses

    USC Tennis offers a varied course programme. You can enter at any level and keep developing your skills.

    USC Tennis courses

    • Courses start 4 times a year.
    • A course consists of 9 classes of 1 hour (9 people on 2 courts).
    • 5 different levels: beginner, 9, 8, 7, and 6/5/4.
    • In July we start an intensive course of 3 weeks, 2 times a week a 1.5 hour class.
    • Choose the course that suits your level of play. If you are not familiar with the Dutch (KNLTB) levels of play please estimate your own level by using the level guide below. In case of doubt, contact USC Tennis for advice.
    • On purchasing a course you get a free free play membership off peak hours.

    Level guide

    • Beginners
      You never (or hardly) played any tennis.
    • Level 9
      You are a level 9 player when you have basic knowledge of the different grips, strokes and game situations. In addition, you can keep the ball in the game for several strokes in a moderate speed.
    • Level 8
      You are a level 8 player if you can play a controlled rally for more than 10 strokes. You also have sufficient rule and stroke knowledge to play an official single or doubles match.
    • Level 7
      You can subscribe for this level if you can show a KNLTB pass with at least one time level 7, or by recommendation of your trainer.
    • Level 6/5/4
      Here, too, you need to be able to show your KNLTB pass and have level 6 at least once, or by recommendation of your trainer.

    Note: the trainers always keep the right to place someone in a different group if the level differs too much with the level of the group.

    No training, just free play?

    Yes you can at USC Tennis! Depending on the period in which you want to play, you can purchase a ‘free play’ membership at USC Tennis or sportcentrum Universum.

    • With your free play membership you can also use our 4 indoor courts.
    • The free play membership gives you access to the courts when they are not reserved for classes, regular court rent or club related activities.
    • Note: during the period April to early June there will be limited ‘play’ in the weekends because of the competition and tournaments. These and other exceptions will be announced on this site.

    Private classes

    A private class lasts 60 minutes and can be booked at USC Tennis.

    Regular court rent
