About the Team

The UBC Men’s tennis team is a highly competitive member of the Thunderbirds Sports Clubs (TSC). The team participates at the highest rank of University tennis in Canada, competing against teams from across the country. Tryouts are held each year to keep the team competitive and to bring fresh players to the roster. The competition season starts mid-February and ends in August with the Canadian National Championships, held alongside the Rogers Cup. Our goal is to earn a spot at the Canadian National Championships, and bring home a win for UBC.

For recruitment, donations, sponsorships, or any other inquiries please email us at menstennis.sc@ubc.ca

As COVID-19 continues to spread within our communities we have been forced to POSTPONE tryouts for the upcoming 2020-21 tennis season. Rather than holding tryouts in September, we have decided to hold official in-person tryouts in JANUARY, barring any unforeseen circumstances. This means that we will not be taking in any new players in the first semester of the 2020-21 season.

Additionally, we will be introducing a video tryout for the upcoming season which can be submitted to our team email, starting September 9th. Please submit the video as either a YouTube or Google Drive link and title it with your first name, last name and UBC Men’s Tennis Video Tryout (ie. John Smith UBC Men’s Tennis Video Tryout). The video tryout should be approximately 5-7 minutes in length. Please start by mentioning some of your most notable tournament results as well as your national, provincial, and/or ITF ranking. Also, tell us a little bit about yourself! Briefly talk about some of your hobbies and things you like to do outside of tennis, as well as your year at UBC and faculty. The rest of the video should cover all fundamental aspects of tennis including baseline groundstrokes, volleys, overheads, serves and returns, and point play (both serving and returning).

NOTE: The video tryout is not mandatory but it will help increase your chances of joining the team as we may deem you eligible to be automatically placed into the final round of tryouts.

If you’re interested in joining the team for the 2020/2021 season please follow our Instagram and Facebook page for updates! If you have any questions please email us at menstennis.sc@ubc.ca
