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 compete internationally. Our six BUCS teams are among the best in the region, with our top teams often featuring in the Premier Leagues.

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

Our court venues include The Queen's Club, Westway Sports & Fitness centre, Hyde Park, Bishop's Park and Virgin Active Fulham Pools.

Members are eligible for a free British Tennis Membership; this entitles you to enter the club ballot for Wimbledon tickets amongst many other benefits. We also have a tradition of going to the O2 to watch the ATP World Tour Finals each year.

We have many social events, including a Welcome Party at the start of term, a Ping Pong Party at Bounce, Bowling and Christmas Dinner.

We hope to see you at our training sessions and events soon!
