Staff sport

We've created a timetable of sports sessions that allows you to have fun, unwind, socialise and keep fit around your work schedule. So why not step away from your desk and come along for a game today?

NTU Sport’s weekly Staff Tennis sessions are organised and delivered by a member of staff who can support with a coached session and/or organising players/groups to get together for a social game. Staff Tennis sessions take place every Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes 12.00 – 13.00. Sessions are FREE for staff members with NTU Sport Active Membership or £2 per session without.

There is also a Staff Tennis Box League, which allows staff to arrange more competitive matches in a structured, organised league based on previous experience/playing level.
