If you’re not interested in becoming a member but you do want to play tennis and participate in training, here’s what you should know:
♦ Playing tennis: To be able to play at the tenniscourt you have to be in possession of an OlymPas, this is a pass which allows you to practice sports at the sportcentre Olympos. Again, not only you can play tennis with this pass, you can also participate in grouplessons and other sportcourses and enter the fitness area . More information about the available sports programma you can find here. For students at the University of Utrecht the cost for an OlymPas is €130 a year. More information about the cost and how to purchase an OlymPas you can find here.
♦ Training: Needless to say, to be able to participate in training you need on OlymPas. After you’ve purchased the OlymPas you can sign up for training. Our tennis courses take place on the all-weather tennis courts at Olympos. Olympos and tennis club TC de Uithof are working together in offering these courses. When you participate in a course you will have lessons once a week during a set day and time. The tennis lessons will be given by the trainers of tennisschool RG sports (Rob van Bunderen, Teun de Vree and Henrik Kroon).
– Basic tennis training: for beginners. You learn the basic techniques of tennis like forehand, backhand, service, volley, smash and the primary tactics for singles and doubles play. If this is your first tennis course ever, than this course is for you. You start at tennis level 10.
– Tennis training: for advanced players (level 9 to 1). You have learned the basics or have followed tennis courses before. You learn special techniques and combinations. You will also learn more tactics for competitive play. If you’re not sure about your level, you can check the international rating comparison table provided by the KNLTB (the Dutch tennis association) by clicking this link: Intrernation rating comparison .
