PLAYING TENNIS


Competition: At TC de Uithof we have two types of official national competition. The first is on the spring (April and May) and the second is in the fall (September and October). It’s not possible anymore to sign up for the competition in the fall (the deadline has passed). So the next competition you can sign up for is the one in the autum. Signing up for this is possible in the spring of 2018. Beside these to official competitions we also have the club’s wintercompetition in January and February, there will be played in dubbels.

Training: 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).
