About Us

IC Lawn Tennis Club is one of the largest and most active societies at Imperial College. We cater for tennis players of all levels, from beginners to players who represent Imperial competitively. Our seven teams are among the best in the region, with the Men's 1st team recently promoted to the Premier League, and nominated for Sport Imperial's Team of the Year.

Our thriving social tennis sessions offer courts, rackets, balls and coaching advice to all standards of players. We have 4 Men's and 2 Women's teams as well as the mixed LUSL team. The club has great success in recent years, winning Sport Imperial's Club of the Year in 2012, 2014, and 2018.

Our courts include Hyde Park, Bishop's Park, Concorde Club, Paddington Rec, and weekly training indoors at the prestigious Queen's Club. We also have a university-wide league to suit all standards who want to play competitive tennis, as well as the LTA's new University Timed Tennis initiative, and regular friendly matches against other London universities.

Members are eligible for A FREE British Tennis Membership. This also entitles you to enter the club ballot for WIMBLEDON TICKETS (as well as many other benefits!). We also have access to tickets to see the top eight players in the world battle it out at the O2 Masters in November.

The club organises plenty of social events including a Christmas dinner and a tour! Previous tours have gone to Spain and Italy.

Join us at Freshers' fair on 2nd October and find out more about joining the club!
